The MAXXI Museum - National Museum of XXI Century Arts is based in Rome and is dedicated to contemporary creativity.
Inaugurated in May 2010, the MAXXI 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 in the center of Rome.
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 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.
