MAXXI is a national museum of contemporary art and architecture: a majestic work of architecture comprising groundbreaking and stunning shapes and forms, designed by Zaha Hadid. Unveiled in 2010, MAXXI was conceived as a large cultural campus, creating and showcasing exhibitions of art and architecture, design, photography, fashion, as well as film series, dance and theatre performances. The surface area of 29,000 square metres incorporates an auditorium, a large outdoor plaza, a research centre – with a library and archives – a bookshop, a cafeteria, and a restaurant/bar.
Permanent works include installations by Anish Kapoor, Sol Lewitt, Maurizio Mochetti. The permanent collection is displayed on rotation, along with temporary exhibitions.
The Auditorium Parco della Musica was built in 1994. The building was designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano and is located in the Parioli district on the Via Flaminia, between the Olympic Village and the Stadio Flaminio. The tour includes the Ceva, the Foyer, the Museums, the Park and the Concert Halls. The three halls “Petrassi Hall”, “Sinopoli Hall” and “Santa Cecilia Hall” are grouped in a semicircle, in the centre is a fourth space, the “Cavea”, which has become an outdoor amphitheatre.
The interior of the three halls, which are designed like individual music instruments as “resonating chambers”, is dominated by wood. The Petrassi Hall seats 750 people and contains a mobile stage which can be expanded by removing the four front rows of seats and an orchestra pit which can be lowered. The “Sinopoli Hall” seats 1200 people. Here the ceiling can be modified to obtain the best acoustics for performances. “Santa Cecilia Hall” seats 2800 people, the seating arranged at different heights around the stage. In this case, the orchestra is practically in the centre of the hall.
