  • I have been exclusively for the photo exhibition by Letizia Battaglia, very nice. The Museum is accessible by public transport. Sin of the exhibition there were no posters or fliers to buy at the book shop.

  • With all the wonderful things to see in Rome don't waste your time at this poor excuse for an art museum.  more »
  • Undoubtedly the maxxi structure does not let you indifferent ... In and out is really nice and all the times I've been I was impressed more by the Museum that the works on display. Limits: the bar. .. Really poor and think that enjoys a position of calling ahead is limiting ... Advantages: helps to give Rome a different dimension, additional to that already known worldwide linked to its history and its greatness. Finally, point out that maxxi is an example of integration with the neighbourhood in which it is offering a space for families and especially children. Many do not appreciate this aspect which lever solemnity all building ... I believe instead that the Romans deserve aggregation spaces ... better if they are so beautiful .... L approach all art I think steps from here too.
