The THAYAHT & RAM Archive was founded in 2008 at the behest of Riccardo Michahelles named with the intent to preserve, acquire and catalogue the documentation for the works and life of the brothers and artists Ernesto Michahelles also known as THAYAHT and Ruggero Alfredo Michahelles also known as RAM.
The Archive also carries out expertise and certification activities for  the numerous collectors and estimators.
Since 2017 the Archive collaborates with the Cultural Association THAYAHT & RAM in promoting and protecting the work of the two artists by collaborating with national and international institutions for exhibitions, cultural studies and other initiatives.
As of March 1, 2018, the THAYAHT & RAM Archive and the THAYAHT & RAM Cultural Association join AITART – Italian Association of Artist Archives based in Milan (www.aitart.com).
