The collections of the MAXXI art present themselves as a strong nucleus that witnesses the national and international artistic production
The MAXXI Architettura collections comprise all those artefacts and documents that, in various ways, represent the material and conceptual complexity of architecture.
The Centro Archivi curates and manages the MAXXI's architecture collections and provides the possibility, inside the Sala Studio, to directly consult the documents and database of its twentieth and twenty-first century collections.
With the my MAXXI card experience the museum full time: unlimited and preferential access, reduced rates to participate to cultural programmes, educational activities and special events.
We need to be able to count on a network of benefactors, both in Italy and abroad, to enhance the museum’s permanent collection, guarantee the conservation of the works and present our public with an engaging cultural programme.
