A tribute to the most influential female architects and architectural personalities in history , is now running at MAXXI Museum of Rome
The Event: Buone Nuove
When: From March 5 to June 26 2022 (Monday-Friday 11: 00/19:00 – Saturday and Sunday 10:00/19:00)
Where: Maxxi Museum, Via Guido Reni, 4
Why: The museum is located on the other side of the city, in the historic Flaminio district, the typical district where you can experience the Romans’ everyday life. It is a more genuine district, different from those included in the usual tourist routes. Over the last 20 years, this area has experienced important architectural changes, with the creation of innovative projects including the Zaha Hadid’s MAXXI, a space dedicated to the contemporary art. Speaking of women, Buone Nuove, the exhibit currently on display, showcases the works by female figures who are injecting new life into the world of modern architecture, with particular attention to the firms directed or co-directed by women.
Designed for: we suggest this exhibit to those interested in modern architecture. Visitors will undoubtedly appreciate the architecture of the entire building as well as the interactive exhibit settings across the exhibition.
Visiting time: around 1 hour.
Our suggestion: The Maxxi’s Legendary Ticket, a special ticket valid for the next 100 years! It is a good way to overcome the uncertainty of this difficult period and is also an opportunity for art to give a small sign of hope.
The New Architecture of Rome
In addition to the Maxxi, the Flaminio district is also home to two other interesting architectural projects: the Armando Trovajoli Music Bridge – completed in 2011 and designed by the London-based Burò Happold firm – and the Auditorium Parco della Musica designed by architect Renzo Piano. The Auditorium consists of three soundbox-shaped buildings which house as many concert halls.
Auditorium – Parco della Musica (7-minute walk – 550m)
Music Bridge (9-minute walk – 750m)
Did you know that Rome is home to the so-called “Little London”? In the area housing the MAXXI lies a private road featuring small and colorful villas in Art Nouveau style. This little corner of Britain – located in Viale del Vignola, 50 – stands out in the Flaminio district thanks to its unique architecture.
