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 and educational activities
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.

Scientific Concept by Alessandro Zuccari, Simonetta Lux
a project promoted by the Comunità di Sant’Egidio_ Laboratori d’Arte
After his presence at the 55th Venice Biennale of 2013, the exhibition by César Meneghetti presents at MAXXI a new series of works born within the ambit of the I\O_ IO È UN ALTRO project.
In Meneghetti’s works the disabled people met by the artist present themselves as persons, perfectly capable of producing thought, space and vision, persons that know, remember, valuate, work, love and create.
Over the course of four years, the research phase of this project has involved over 200 people with mental disabilities who live in the capital, through a multidisciplinary approach realised with the Art Workshops of the Comunità di Sant’Egidio in order to investigate the concept of confines.
The long process of research and education, workshop and creative actions will be narrated in the book that will accompany the exhibition I\O _IO È UN ALTRO, putting up for discussion the idea of ability/disability, frequently founded on prejudice.
2013 - Video HD, colore, suono stereo, 38’45’’, videoinstallazione monocanale. Operatore: Beatriz Franco, Ivan Giordano, César Meneghetti. Montaggio: Alberto Rigno, César Meneghetti. Hanno collaborato: Yael Leibel, Eleonora Carbone.
The VIDEOBOOTH ‘frames’ its interlocutors, recording their every gaze, gesture, stance, and words (including the words of those who cannot utter them, and type on a keyboard instead). Meneghetti has extrapolated a vivid sequence of stills which, edited into a quadripartite pattern, come into mutual exchange and interaction. What ensues is a wholly original Gallery of People who show themselves for what they are, in a display of dignity and fragility, and truthfully voice their views on matters of great moment (happiness, love, reality, solitude, death, seclusion, richness, change, normality and diversity…). […] It is almost the obverse of a canonical gallery of heroes and heroines, because their stance is that of the antihero, and their beauty is anti-canonical: authenticity is what lends them beauty. Not exempla virtutis, then, these characters are almost exempla veritatis…” (A. Zuccari, in Antieroica eloquenza degli esclusi, I\O, Maretti Editore 2013).
What ensues has the appearance of a long take, although the sequence is in fact intricately and invisibly edited: providing a key to the overall project, the work portrays the disabled in some form of dialogue with each other that involves the audience too.
2015 - Videoinstallazione a 50 canali / 50 mini-monitor, Video HD, colore, 3’30”. Testi di Gabriele Tagliaferro. Montaggio: Alberto Rigno, César Meneghetti.
Gabriele Tagliaferro is affected by an acute form of autism. With Ex-sistentia, César Meneghetti makes visible his awareness of a distance between his body and his intended actions and ideations. Ex-sistentia thus reveals to the art-viewing public how Gabriele perceives the space around him and how he experiences his own thoughts. Fifthy small monitors display the slowly revolving image of Gabriele, taken within the video booth. Word-fragments typed on a computer come at the close of each apparition. With each monitor displaying a different movement and the simultaneous sound of words and tunes in Gabriele’s own voice, we gradually come close to the root of his message that ‘all is word’.
2015 - Audio-installazione a 6 canali, fotografia digitale, 150 X 230 cm
The photograph tells of another life for Patrizia Nasini and another story for Vincenzo Camelia. The old life, related in their own voice, is no longer there and remains unseen. An entrance hall. A kitchen. A bedroom. A large photograph dominates the others. She, dressed in white. He, in dark dress. A small, happy, normal couple of newlyweds. Patrizia had been neither ‘normal’ nor happy beforehand. Behind the image, beyond the photograph, lie stories that no image can tell or enclose within itself.
2015 - Video a 4 canali, video HD, colore, 8’. Direzione di movimento: Cristina Elias. Montaggio: César Meneghetti. Soundscape: Yuko Matsuiama.
Life-size images of people appear on four monitors, as they stand upright and walk rightward and leftward with their eyes shut. A metaphor for existence, of our being ephemeral, passing forms – either ignored or unaware. Constant movement is the only way for us not to be mired down in mediocrity. Dislocation in space is a constant loss of balance. Walking, passing, transiting are images of our existential condition. Imbalance and lack of certainty are our only certainty.
