In Rome, opened Museum of Modern Art

MAXXI or the National Museum of Art and Architecture of the XXI century on Sunday opened to visitors in Rome.

For the Italian capital, the famous masterpieces of classical art, new museum Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid was one of the most celebrated modern attractions.

On the construction of spiral-shaped concrete building area of 27,000 square meters, it took 11 years, and the cost of the project amounted to 150 million euros.

Among the exhibits presented in the exhibition - the work of Anish Kapoor, Andy Warhol, Sol Lewitt, Francesco Vetstsoli.

The museum is built on the site of the former army barracks outside the historic center of Rome, and contrasts sharply with the surrounding building houses and the baroque church, located on the same street.

Avangard next to the baroque

Inside the gray futuristic buildings are two separate museums: the Art and Architecture. Apart from them within a library, workshops and individual rooms for live theatrical performances.

One of the architectural features of the museum MAXXI have huge windows and glass ceilings.

"In Rome, a wonderful light, - explained the idea architect Zaha Hadid won the competition for a project of the museum in 1999. - The idea of this project in the layering of elements and covering space in a natural way."

The Eternal City is transformed

The museum was one of several ambitious projects designed to make the Eternal City the capital of modern art.

"Our primary duty - to protect our heritage and use it well. But we must also, and it is very important to maintain and promote the cultural space and the artists of our time" - said at the grand official opening of the museum on Thursday, Culture Minister Sandro Bondi Italian .

However, unlike New York, London or Berlin, previous attempts to build a modern building in Rome, met sharp criticism.

The current mayor of Rome Gianni Alemanno has repeatedly talked about the hostility to the new trends in architecture, and the Minister of Culture Sandro Bondi is known for saying that he does not understand modern art.

Is the museum still functional? I'd like to visit it and maybe even start a collaboration with our art storage facilities.
