The MAXXI_National Museum of the Arts of the XXI century
is a Foundation established by the Ministry of National Heritage
It is the first national museum dedicated to contemporary
creativity thought as a great campus dedicated
to culture, a laboratory of experiment, study and research.
Thus, in the adventure of an institution so projected towards the future,
it was decided to carry out a grand public work with the innovative
and spectacular architectural forms of the architect Zaha Hadid.
The MAXXI has been created to promote 21st century
art and architecture and to collect, preserve, study and display examples of contemporary creativity in the arts.
The MAXXI aims at becoming a national point of reference
for public and private institutions operating in Italy and abroad,
as well as for artists, architects and the general public.
The museum pursues an exhaustive evaluation of the present, delineating a constantly updated framework of the development
of 21st century art and architecture.
The MAXXI is home to two distinct institutions that share
the spaces and resources of the new museum:
MAXXI art and MAXXI architecture
