Extraordinary bison collection

Add a link

When asked why he chose such an unusual name for his leather bags and accessories company Wanny Di Filippo replied: “Because I am in love with bison: they represent both peace and strength.”

The founder and brand ambassador’s love story with bison blossomed in the late 1960s. Since then Wanny has never stopped collecting works of art, everyday paraphernalia and “sentimental items” dedicated to this animal. The resulting astounding collection is housed in Palazzo Corsini’s Bison Museum in the heart of Florence.

More than 2000 pieces have been cataloged so far: paintings, sculptures, prints, artistically crafted items in precious materials from all over the world; toys, plush animals and pinball machines; wooden rolling pins and bone pipes; nineteenth-century bronzes and magnificent Murano glass; American coins and buckles; Polish stamps, vintage postcards and books in myriad languages; Art Deco ceramics and newspaper pages; Christmas decorations, bottles of vodka, furniture and ties.

Wanny’s obsession is glorious and his extraordinary collection of memorabilia is an ever-evolving temple of true bison-mania.
