  • There is no sense to write a lot, it is worth coming here only to those who love modern architecture (designers, architects) and contemporary art. A well-organized space with a central large geometric red structure with two levels. It looks very spectacular and is the main element of attraction. There is a small book department decided in the general context of the project. There is an elevator, on the ground floor mounted a red glowing neon inscription, visible from the first floor. You can climb to the roof and wander through it, sit in chairs, go down from the roof ...

  • I can't believe how this building was one jam packed with cutting edge, provocative, charming, and just plain interesting art. Now it's less than empty- it's a cultural and artistic vacuum. If there w...  more »
  • More a working tool for artists than a museum. The building somewhat hidden in the classical architecture of the city reveals itself inside with a complete restructuring making this building a tool for contemporary art.

  • If i could give no stars I would. Biggest disappointment of my whole trip. The museum was empty. Nothing to see, and staff were not willing to help and had no knowledge whatsoever of what we could see. They just gave us weird looks when we asked where the exhibitions were.. We walked through the whole building and all we found were empty rooms, and no direction or information was provided. Seemed more like an art school, but without any art. The building and architecture was nice, sure, but this should not be called a museum.
  • Big building with lots of potential, but not much to see. Definitely can skip this place. Rome isn’t for contemporary art anyway, but it was quite empty as a museum. It’s free so if you really curious could walk around.
  • Nice place to visit. Sadly two of the main art peace I wanted to see where not there and the temporary exposition was meh..
  • Cool architecture. Not really a museum, though? We got to talk to one of the artists in the studio which was awesome.
  • Incredible and undervisited collection of art. We were able to speak directly to an artist and discuss his inspirations.
