As part of the Open House event, held in Rome from 6th to 7th May, the MAXXI National Museum of 21st Century Arts presented the public with a new exhibition of the permanent collection, large installations and works never seen before, for the start of theMAXXI RE-EVOLUTION!
With the slogan "MAXXI RE-EVOLUTION" the Museum of Rome, designed by architect Zaha Hadid, presented the public with a new exhibition, "The Place to Be" dedicated to the permanent collection, with important new features, aimed at making the museum more accessible and open to the city. The museum has new catering spaces, a new café-bookshop in via Guido Reni and a new restaurant in piazza Alighiero Boetti, with Michelin-starred chef Cristina Bowerman.
The exhibition begins in piazza Alighiero Boetti, in front of the museum and continues seamlessly inside the building, involving the ground floor and part of the first floor, with large installations created by contemporary artists. It accompanies the new policy for admission to the ground floor, which is free from Tuesday to Friday and on the first Sunday of the month. The architectural works displayed for the first time include designs for the Naples Underground created by architects including Dominique Perrault and Álvaro Siza.
