Museum / Rome

The architectural complex known as the Mattatoio di Testaccio, built by Gioacchino Ersoch between 1888 and 1891, is considered one of the most important surviving examples of industrial archaeology in the city on account of the modernity and originality of its structure.

The restoration project, based on an idea by Zoneattive, kicked off in the early 2000s. The construction site was opened in 2006 and completed in 2010, the renovation work involving the conversion of the pavilions used for water storage, pig-meat processing and as slaughterhouses.

The Mattatoio, now under the auspices of Azienda Speciale Palaexpo, is armed with the objective of creating a Centre of Contemporary Cultures in the city of Rome, intended to be a place of cultural production that will foster dialogue between the most interesting organizations operating in the city and in Italy as a whole.
