MAXXI – National Museum of the 21st Century Arts - Museum in Rome.

Rome’s National Museum of the 21st Century Arts, also known as the MAXXI, was opened in 2010 and is dedicated to experimental contemporary art and architecture. The museum, built by architect Zaha Hadid, won the Royal Institute of British Architects’ 2010 Stirling Prize for its innovative and sleek design.

The two sections of the MAXXI, MAXXI Art and MAXXI Architecture, house both temporary and permanent works.

Average rating:
very beautiful museum
Fabrizio D. Dec 12, 2012
I very much like the art modern and architecture modern, I study to be architect in Milan but I am born in Roma and am loyal to Roma architecture first. Much tourist think that we Romans are very conservativ and do not like the new and modern art. Is not true, because we Romans love art, not important when made. We Romans love history and the great Roma civilization but we are not freezed in history, we are modern peoples. The Maxxi is great example of modern Roma. The building is very intelligent and very beautiful and very beautiful design. The art inside change much times, but is exciting to have diverse exhibition.
