Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Roma (MACRO) information
Along with MAXXI, this is Rome’s most important contemporary art gallery. Occupying a converted Peroni brewery, it hosts temporary exhibitions and displays works from its permanent collection of post-1960s Italian art.
Vying with the exhibits for your attention is the museum's sleek black-and-red interior design. The work of French architect Odile Decq, this retains much of the building’s original structure while also incorporating a sophisticated steel-and-glass finish.
