MACRO Via Nizza

Rome’s Museum of Contemporary Art, MACRO, is held in two different sites: its headquarters and main collection are housed in Via Nizza, while a secondary venue in the Testaccio area hosts temporary exhibitions. The site in Via Nizza occupies a former brewery and houses the museum’s permanent collection of over 1,200 works dating from the ‘60s to today. In 2000, the French architect Odile Decq was appointed to design the museum’s extensive revamp. Her project introduced the iconic red structures we see today and reconfigured the museum’s surface by adding a terrace, foyer and the various open passageways that have come to define the new space.
