The relationship between architecture and yachting has historical roots: from Le Corbusier to Renzo Piano many architects have seen in yacht design an aspect of habitation rich in opportunity for reflection.
MAXXI plays host the Yacht Architecture Program, three seminars with some of the leading international figures in the field who will be discussing their work in terms of land, water and wind.

In the second seminar Ivana Porfiri, designer of celebrated yachts such as Guilty for the collector Dakis Joannu, defined as a floating contemporary art gallery, explores the relationship between yachting, art and high design.

The designer began her professional career in 1988 in Milan, working with the Gregotti Associati studio, mainly dealing with the design of large cruise ships. In 1998 she founded, together with Pierluigi Cerri and Alessandro Colombo, Cerri & Associati, leaving the studio in 2002 to set up Porfiri Studio in Milan.
