Paintings, art installations, videos, sculptures and photographs are routinely on display in this brand new museum, which has caused something of a stir since its opening in 2010 thanks to innovative design created by Anglo-Iraqi starchitect Zaha Hadid. Indeed, the museum is a destination in itself with curved walls, squirming cement tubes overlapped with stairs and meandering passages and exhibition halls. In a city with many layers of history and just as many museums to bear witness to them, MAXXI is the most exciting new addition to Rome’s cultural scene.
The 2nd Edition of Hg2 Rome is online now and available in print end of June 2011. Browse the Hg2 store here
