MAXXI Rome Opens



Italy’s MAXXI national museum of 21st century art opens in Rome. Designed by the architect du moment Zaha Hadid, the building took 10 years to complete and is situated at the site of the former montello military barracks.

With two distinct collection departments, focusing at once on Art and on Architecture, the mission is to present the national and international artistic production, with special attention to the experience and realities linked to the Italian context.
