Within the Capitoline cultural reality, the MACRO (Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Roma / Museum of Contemporary Art, Rome) has managed over time to create a specific and independent national physiognomy, with an international aim. MACRO, one of the Rome Civic Museums, is now considered a focus of public contemporary art in Rome, to which the workers in the field, but also the general public, turn to propose exhibitions and events or for the simple collection of updated information. MACRO is a center for contemporary art that intends to become more versatile, maintaining its civic identity and reinforcing the participation and relationship with the community, in all its artistic, cultural and intellectual fields.
