The Collezione di dipinti antichi della Banca Popolare dell’Emilia Romagna is a collection of classic Italian artworks from the last seven centuries in Emilia-Romagna, that has been purchased by Banca Popolare dell'Emilia Romagna.

Modern viccisitudes have concentrated the collection of Italian art to a few entities, most prominently banks. Those artworks in private hands in Italy cannot win export licences, hence find local homes with such patrons. The collection of the Banca Popolare dell’Emilia Romagna is not unique in its scope, like most banks it focus on local talent; in fact this formidable collection includes artists from the last seven centuries from the region or whose paintings could be found locally. It is housed in Modena.
