MAXXI – The National Museum of XXI Century Arts, is the first Italian national institution devoted to contemporary creativity and conceived as a broad cultural campus. MAXXI is managed by a Foundation constituted in July of 2009 by the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities and houses two museums: MAXXI Art and MAXXI Architecture.
The programming of the activities—exhibitions, workshops, conferences, shows, projections, educational projects—reflects MAXXI’s vocation as a place for the conservation and exhibition of its collections but also, and above all, as a laboratory for cultural experimentation and innovation, for the study, research, and production of the aesthetic contents of our time.
MAXXI’s building is a major architectural work designed by Zaha Hadid and located in Rome’s Flaminio quarter.
MAXXI joined the Young Architects Program in 2011.
