Via Nizza, 138

Tuesdays to Sundays from 10:30am to 7pm

MACRO is Rome’s museum for Contemporary Art with two venues. The building in Via Nizza sits among neoclassical neighbours, embassies and upscale stores. It was an old beer brewing factory owned by Peroni. In 2010 the whole place was revamped by French architect Odile Decq who made it a less predictable museum, with weird and notable features, almost like a maze, with multiple angles and alternative viewpoints. A true masterpiece that rivals with the art exposed on the walls. The another venue, in Testaccio, Rome’s outskirts, is a converted slaughterhouse with larger installations.
