The MAXXI National Museum of 21st Century Arts is the first national institution dedicated to contemporary creativity. Conceived as a large culture campus, MAXXI is managed by a Foundation established in July 2009 by the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities and chaired by Giovanna Melandri. Since December 2013, Hou Hanru has been the Artistic Director of the museum, which includes MAXXI Architecture, directed by Margherita Guccione, and MAXXI Arte, directed Bartolomeo Pietromarchi since 2016. The programming of activities – exhibitions, workshops, conferences, laboratories, shows, screenings, training projects – reflects the vocation of MAXXI to be not only a place for conservation and exhibition of heritage, but also and above all a laboratory for experimentation and cultural innovation: for study, research and production of contemporary aesthetic contents. The seat of MAXXI is a superb architectural work with innovative and spectacular shapes, designed by Zaha Hadid in the Flaminio district of Rome. MAXXI is organised into four Departments: MAXXI Architecture, MAXXI Art, MAXXI Research, Education, Training, and MAXXI Development.
