  • The Macro Via Nizza is the favored son of the museums of contemporary art in Rome where there has been a good recovery operation of industrial archaeology. So as to achieve a dynamic and attractive in many ways as to be different than new, after the second redevelopment/expansion of the exhibition spaces at the beginning of the years 2000 designed by Odile Decq. The need for new showrooms has found a solution with the addition of two external pavilions is then added Pelanda, all three forming part of the complex of Testaccio, the former slaughterhouse. Speaking then of Testaccio and therefore also of Macro, the most disheartening of the whole affair is the fact that the redevelopment plan of new environments and new areas, when it happened, was restricted to the Interior. Then the spaces destined to the many different realities with which the complex – and then who decides--must deal, have experienced a State of suffering. The actors involved are different as well 12 institutions or official bodies for which the outdoor areas or those that are not used for new assignments remained in their State of decay, inaccessible or delimited by fences (70% of the total area). We can say a case of managerial swamp? But back to Hall B of the Macro Testaccio where the 12 April it inaugurated the exhibition "Alfredo Pirri. The fish don't carry guns "that represents the journey end-of-project started by the author in 2016. The central theme around which to develop works is the city in some of its multiple aspects: open space, meeting place, sharing, urban area and beyond. Among the 50 works on display, one is a path where the floor is made of mirrors that are crushed under the steps before the artist and then visitors. Keep in mind that Pirri doesn't talk about liquid City (in title) but rather fluid: is it the same?

  • In the former birreria Peroni was adapted the macros and customization is very nice though although I love modern art exposure was not impressed and thought the public money that is spent on maintaining this complex that could attract more visitors than they've seen me. Too bad.

  • Hanish Kapoor exhibition is stunning, if you are in Rome you have to see it!!! The museum itself is a bit jaded and frayed around the edges... We wanted to have breakfast there, but they did not have ...  more »

  • Macro always offers great exhibitions. I've been there several times, for photographic and modern art events. The place itself is really nice, dislocated over several buildings, with great outside places to walk and rest. It features two bars, inside and outside, and a book and gift shop. Fully accessible to wheelchairs.
  • One of the greatest museum for the fans persons about contemporary art, famous operas arrenged in a large and showy room..whort to come and feel, see the masterpieces of our 9°century
  • MACRO - Don't bother. Friday morning, the place was a graveyard. Staff is about as helpful as a dead battery. Ticket receptionist had some kind of animosity defect, gift shop did not have change for a 10 on a 6 Euro purchase. Exhibits were OK, but building is confusing, no obvious path, doors closed without signage. Bridge is incidental. Looks good, but worthless as an exhibit space. Orange structure in core was closed, no signage, no obvious purpose, no benefit to the architecture. Map handout was irrelevant. Too bad Rome is spending so much on a staff who hate visitors and a space that lacks the energy that art offers. Go to MAXXI and find some relevant culture.
  • Deadbeat exhibitions. Nice building.
  • Poor signage and unhelpful staff.
