    Il nuovo museo del MAXXI

    Between the slopes of the Parioli area and the hill on which stands the Olympic Village, you can see the Auditorium by Renzo Piano, now a place of encounter with the music. Not far away, in the Flaminio district, Anglo-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid, the first woman awarded the Pritzker Prize, has designed the barracks in Montello MAXXI, the National Museum for Art of the XXI century. The trip through Rome’s most modern and avant-garde must necessarily include a visit to the neighborhood called where you can also see short the futuristic “cloud”, the new Congress, designed by Massimiliano Fuksas. Although slightly off the tourist circuit closely, it’s worth taking a leap in the suburb of Tor Tre Teste, which stands magnificent in its dazzling whiteness of the “church of the Third Millennium”, the Dives Misericordia, by the American Richard Meier. Discover the contemporary Rome mean, however, even dive in the atmospheres of young and popular neighborhoods such as Testaccio, and Garbatella Ostia, where the people of the cinema and designers line up to grab the most exclusive lofts recovered industrial archeology, right next to Gasometer for example. The MAXXI – National Museum of the 21st Century Arts is a national museum dedicated to contemporary creativity, located in the Flaminio neighbourhood of Rome, Italy. It is managed by a foundation created by the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities. It was designed as a multidisciplinary space by Zaha Hadid and committed to experimentation and innovation in the arts and architecture. History The project was first announced in 1998 and took over 10 years to complete, during which time there have been six changes of national government in Italy.[1] The design of Zaha Hadid was the winner of an international design competition. The art installation and the opening of MAXXI, in 2010, were photographed by Simone Cecchetti, who was chosen from national photography competition. The Royal Institute of British Architect’s (RIBA) 2010 Stirling Prize for architecture has been awarded to MAXXI.[2] In its 15th year, the award is presented annually for the best new European building, built or designed in Britain, judged to have made the greatest contribution to the evolution of British architecture. [edit]Description Interiors The building is a composition of bending oblong tubes, overlapping, intersecting and piling over each other, resembling a piece of massive transport infrastructure.[3] The MAXXI consists of two museums: “MAXXI art” and “MAXXI architecture”.[4] In addition to the two museums, the MAXXI also features an auditorium, a library and media library specialized in art and architecture, a bookshop, a cafeteria, a bar/restaurant, galleries for temporary exhibition, performances, educational activities. The large public square designed in front of the museum is planned to host art works and live events. The MAXXI has been acclaimed by The Guardian as “Hadid’s finest built work to date”[1] and a masterpiece fit to sit alongside Rome’s ancient wonders[3] The outdoor courtyard surrounding the museum provides a venue for large-scale works of art.[5] Maxxi, Rome Collections The permanent collections of these two museums grow through direct acquisitions, as well as through commissions, thematic competitions, awards for young artists, donations and permanent loans.
