Zaha Hadid! Think of her what you… well think… but that lady knows how to build a museum! Last weekend we took a trip to Rome and besides enjoying the culinary world, visiting the Pope and wrestling ourselves with what felt like a million tourists, through the highlights of ancient Rome, we also made two stops to satisfy our desire for contemporary art and architecture.
The first highlight was the recently extended MACRO… followed by a Sunday brunch and in depth visit of the Maxxi! It’s a beauty! The play of lights, lines and shape are almost overwhelming in the public areas… but take a step back and let the artwork dominate in the exhibition spaces…
It didn’t hurt the experience that we got to enjoy an exhibition containing over 100 works of Michelangelo Pistoletto. It was great the see such a large assembly of his mirror paintings… a form we saw having a strong comeback in recent art fairs.
So… if you look for an excuse to revisit Rome… Maxxi it is.
