Zaha Hadid in Italy @ MAXXI: Museum of XXI Century Arts in Rome

Messner Mountain Museum Corones, Dolomiti

One of the most influential and visionary architects of our times, Zaha Hadid has redefined the architecture of the twenty-first century and captured the imagination of the whole world.

You really have to have a goal.
The goal posts might shift, but you should have a goal. Know what it is you want to find out.

One year since her untimely death, MAXXI is devoting to her the exhibition Zaha Hadid in Italy.
Focusing on Hadid’s projects in Italy, the exhibition highlights her intense and productive relationship with our country, presenting projects and works created by means of various instruments of representation, research, and experimentation that she honed in the course of her career.

The exhibition presents a portrait of Hadid’s multifarious personality, it is conceived as a walk through; starting from the built work and projects in design development in Italy, to product design.
In addition to the Italian projects that constitute the backbone of the exhibition, a selection of other projects that made up a significant transition in the evolution of Zaha Hadid’s language and architectural research are also on display, from the very beginnings to the more recent works that are still under way. In this evolution, the Italian projects have often represented a juncture and a turning point towards new research and experimentational horizons.
