Marisa and Mario Merz are among the most important artists of the 20th century. Both artists are associated with the Arte Povera movement and both are known for their sculptures and installations.

Marisa (1931) and Mario (1925-2003) lived and worked closely together for over 50 years. Even though they have created works together, the majority of their works have a distinctly individual style.

The exhibition Marisa and Mario Merz at MACRO Via Nizza focuses on the artists’ relationship with Rome, a place where they have worked and exhibited. Among the works on display is the spiral by Mario Merz designed for the Imperial Forum in 2003, for the first time shown in the vertical position for which it was originally intended.
