MAXXI: the Culture Factory
A lectury by Pio Baldi

The Roman MAXXI (Museo Nazionale delle Arti del XXI Secolo) designed by Zaha Hadid and opened in 2010, presents the most important phenomenon of modern art and architecture. MAXXI Architettura is a museum that is at the same time both historical and modern, in which the past and the present meet. MAXXI Architettura’s exhibitions contain everything that documents the process of creating a work of architecture. Focusing on modern art, MAXXI Arte serves as an interpreter and spokesman for different types of art, promoting new art and showing full awareness of the fact that modernity assumes various forms whose origins can be retraced in earlier centuries. MAXXI is a museum with architecture that is far for schematic – a starting point for new museum practices which break from those of the past. In addition to its usual exhibitions, the museum offers an array of  multidisciplinary cultural events, being a museum, an archive, a library and a media library, while at the same time a space which embraces, encourages and brings people together.
