The Histories of Art return: a series of discussions of the history of contemporary art designed to investigate the past 50 years of Italian art together with its protagonists and the ideas that revolutionised the ways of making and observing art.
From January to May on the third Saturday of each month, gallery owners, curators and art critics will invite the general public to the MAXXI to learn about the neo-avant-gardes, conceptualism and Arte Povera, postmodernism and art in the 21st century.
The talks are not only lessons on contemporary art, but the stories of the leading figures of extraordinary exhibitions that defined the history of contemporary Italian art.

Art&Science with Paolo Garbolino
Admittance €4 – free for holders of the my MAXXI membership card while places are available; tickets must be picked up by 11.15 on the day of the event
