THE MAXXI MUSEUM
At the foot of the Parioli neighbourhood coming down from the hill of Via Aldrovandi in Flaminio district, entrance door to the heart of the city of Rome. With a pleasant walk of no more than half an hour (about 2 km) from our Residence you get to MAXXI Museum (Museum of the Arts of the 21st Century), the logical continuation of the exhibition of the 800s and of the 900s that can be admired at the National Gallery.
The design idea at the end of the 90's was to create a multifunctional area which then could accommodate the exhibition; temporary workshops, events and performances by embedding it in an historic setting like that of the Flaminio district. A visit to the national centre is a must for contemporary art and architecture lovers in order to encourage experimentation and cultural innovation.
Inside you can witness the two souls that characterise the Museum. The part devoted to 'Anonymous architecture moulds and also "Copyright" is able to co-exist equally and tell the story that distinguishes Italian evolution, a part that satisfies present and futuristic society. The other part is devoted to contemporary art with permanent exhibitions of emerging artists who between the 60s and 2000 were distinguished as Boetti, Clement, Richter, Merz, Kentridge is Cattelan.
The visit to the Museum is accompanied by a series of nearby attractions not to be missed as a visit to Auditorium del Parco della Musica a true work of art (as well as a place of exhibitions and concerts of world value) of the famous architect Renzo Piano, the beautiful Romanesque Church of Santa Croce and the Church of Sant'Andrea in Vignola erected by Pope Julius III in 1500
Beyond the Tevere with a nice walk on the Bridge of Music you can reach Foro Italico the Olympic done built for the Olympics of the 1960's and Ponte Milvio a real meeting place for the nightlife of Rome, rich in restaurants, cafés and ice-cream shops of the highest quality.
