Almost a year ago MAXXI was finally open and me an my friend Concetta visited it. Read about MAXXI in my previous post here! If visiting Rome MAXXI is A-MUST-SEE, just as much as Colosseo is. I cannot really put in words my reactions when I first saw it. It's just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! There are many different opinions (and some quite negative) about the project. I personally find Zaha Hadid's idea brilliant. The thing with modern architecture (and art) is that, before giving a judgement one has to understand its purpose. Building safe-looking constructions with harmonical facades and logical plan distributions is not what architecture is about. TODAY. Yes, because we are living in an era where every single thing is doubted and under question. And that's what art and architecture are denouncing. Zaha Hadid's project is a built proof of it - there is a total confusion going on. Once inside one has the sensation of getting lost continuosly.. going up and down, right and left.. nothing else but a total déjà vu! Take a look at the pictures yourself
Oh that's me
The ticket office is open until 1 hour before museum closing.
