Rome looks towards the future with two hi-tech museums dedicated to contemporary art the Maxxi and Macro: two museums destined to become emblems of the avant-garde in the eternal city.
Maxxi Architecture houses a series of retrospective exhibitions dedicated to the great protagonists of 20th century architecture and a contemporary section, which gives particular emphasis to the work of young designers and an international vision of 21st century architecture. Maxxi Art boasts a permanent collection of circa 300 paintings, sculptures, installations, and works of video and net-artcreated by artists of international standing between 1960 and 2000. Clemente, Boetti, Kentridge, Richter and Merz are just a few of the artists featured. The museum aims to be a showcase for experimental art forms and temporary exhibitions.
Like the Maxxi, the new wing of the city's Macro museum in Rome's Nomentano district, is the work of a female architect, Odile Decq. The Macro museum is also home to the Macro Testaccio, located in a complex which was once a slaughterhouse, and is one of the most characteristic edifices in this, a part of Rome particular rich in cultural stimuli. The building's 19th century pavilions are an important example of industrial architecture and serve as symbol of the transition between the classic and the modern age.
