Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome

The Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome, usually known as MACRO, is a municipal contemporary art museum in Rome, Italy. Rome’s MACRO (which stands for Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Roma – or, the Contemporary Art Museum of Rome), first opened in 2002. It quickly became a reference point for contemporary art in the city and is one of the main art museums in Rome. There are actually two branches of the MACRO in Rome. One is inside Testaccio’s Ex-Mattatoio (slaughterhouse), but the main branch of the art museum is found on Via Nizza, near Parioli. The MACRO museum’s main branch is located inside an old Peroni brewery, which has been completely transformed into a multi-building space for the art collections and temporary exhibits. The MACRO’s permanent collection showcases examples of some of the most important art movements in Italy since the 1960s, including Arte Povera and Forma 1.
