MAXXI is the national museum dedicated to contemporary creativity in Rome. It was inaugurated in May 2010 and is managed by a private law foundation established by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism. Furthermore, in 2013 it was recognized as a private research institution. Conceived as a large campus for culture, MAXXI was designed by Zaha Hadid, winner of an international competition, and is a great architectural work with innovative and spectacular forms.
It produces and hosts art, architecture, design and photography exhibitions, as well as fashion, cinema, music, theater and dance performances, lectures and meetings with artists, architects and protagonists of our time. MAXXI in Rome is much more than a museum: a platform open to all the languages of creativity and a place for meeting, exchanges and collaborations, a space open to all, a laboratory for the future.
