40 years on from his death, MAXXI is dedicating a major retrospective to him that studies and presents his versatility, starting out with an account of his architecture.
Il mondo di Altan raccontato con disegni originali, poster, illustrazioni, quadri, schizzi, tavole, libri e filmati.
A focus show on the architecture of Louis Kahn through the photographs of Roberto Schezen.
In the year of its 10th anniversary, MAXXI chooses to give great space to Italian creativity, by hosting the winners of the competition held by the MiBACT Italian Council.
For the first time, MAXXI dedicates a focus to a critic's archive, one of the most important intellectuals and writer of the last half-century, who died at the age of 87 in 2017.
A retrospective on the extraordinary theoretical and practical contribution of an “unusual architect”. On display materials from archives and collections from all over the world.
In occasione del decennale dalla scomparsa della studiosa, gallerista e collezionista, il MAXXI le rende omaggio con un focus nella sala del museo a lei dedicata.

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
Abbiamo bisogno di poter contare su di una rete di sostenitori, per incrementare la collezione permanente, tutelare la conservazione delle opere e offrire e al nostro pubblico un programma culturale di qualità.

Italy as a territory is losing its function as an international cultural center,
it is not nationalizing for itself, but its intellectuals continue the cosmopolitan function,
separiting themselves from the territory and swarming abroad.

“What is an architect?
I think we have to answer that before anything else. Each one of us is different.
When we are working as architects, we are each in a different environment,
in a different society, in different places, and so forth; and because of that,
I don’t believe in emphasizing a technical training for an architect.
I believe much more, in a moral training.

– What do you want from us, we who come from the Old World?
– We need to know whether you’re good enough to enter the New World.
– And so you are God Almighty who decides whether we’re good enough
to enter your land of the other world?
Dialogue in Emanuele Crialese’s movie Golden Door (Nuovo Mondo), 2006
The video interview project recounts the stories, choices and motivations for the exiled Italian architects, as well as their desire to return and a country ready to embrace them.

When you visit Erasmus Effect,
when you hear the stories of these young architects and professionals who have emigrated,
you’ll soon realize just how much talent Italy has been able to waste.
What we could have become. And what we are instead.
In this area of the exhibition, thanks to the contribution of the Sergio Nava’s programme Giovani Talenti(Radio24), we can hear from a broader range of migrants: along with the architects are researchers, scientists and technicians who emigrate in search of opportunities and better working conditions.

The work of the Lot-Ekstudio is composed almost exclusively of fragments of transport containers. The exhibition structure only emphasises the sense of “movement” underlying the show, reminding us that all ideas and talents being spent abroad are an active part of a national scientific and creative community that is just waiting to be able to make its contribution.
