Palazzo delle Esposizioni (Palace of Exhibitions) in Rome is the largest interdisciplinary exhibition venue in the centre of Rome with more than 10,000 square meters of space on three floors, including an auditorium and a cinema. It is used for art exhibitions, film festivals, theatre productions and events related to photography, music and literature.
The building is in neo-classical style and was inaugurated in 1883. During the Fascist period it was used for exhibitions and events, but since its neo-classical appearance clashed with the then current style of classicism, the façade would often be temporarily altered.
During a renovation from 2003 to 2007, Palazzo delle Esposizioni was thoroughly modernised and extended with a contemporary glass conservatory, a roof-top restaurant and a street-level cafe.
