The National centre
for the Contemporary Art
and Architecture

Opened in 2010, the Museum of XXI Century Arts in Rome bears the unmistakable architectural signs of Zaha Hadid.

The museum is located in an area of the capital at the center of a great transformation. Concrete, glass, metal and the modulation of white, black and gray characterize MAXXI both inside and out.

The MAXXI project has allowed the realization of more than 10 years of fluid dynamic architecture ideas.

MAXXI, the National Museum of 21st Century Arts, is the first Italian national institution devoted to contemporary creativity.

Skylights, from being a technological element, become an important part of the architecture both inside and outside.
