Tip
MACRO has two locations: Via Nizza and Testaccio

MACRO – Museo di Arte Contemporanea di Roma (Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome) is specialised in Italian contemporary art from the 1960s onwards. The museum has two locations: one called Via Nizza and the other Testaccio.

The Via Nizza location houses the main part of the museum. The building is an old Peroni beer brewery, which since its dismission in 1971 has been used for cultural activities. In 2004, French architect Odile Decq extended the building so that more of the permanent collection could be exhibited.

The collection includes around 600 artworks, representing the main recent Italian art movements like Gruppo Forma 1 (Carla Accardi, Antonio Sanfilippo, Achille Perilli, Piero Dorazio and Ettore Colla), Arte Povera (Mario Ceroli and Pino Pascali) and Scuola di Piazza del Popolo (Tano Festa, Mario Schifano, Titina Maselli and Mimmo Rotella).
