Magazzino Italian Art is a private initiative conceived by Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Spanu to house their collection of post-war Italian art
he commission consisted in a full renovation of an existing 11,000 square-foot building and an additional 14,000 square feet of new construction. The existing L-shaped structure was erected in 1964 as a distribution center for dairy products and surrounded by loading docks and canopies. The new space needed a taller clearance, since some of the collection’s pieces were large, as well as highly controlled natural light.
