Tour Description

The museum La Galleria Nazionale (formerly GNAM) is a historical cultural institution established to document the development of modern art in Italy.

The MAXXI (Museum of Art of the 21st Century), designed by the architect Zaha Hadid, aims to showcase the most recent artistic creations.

As your guide, I will lead you through the galleries, showcasing paintings, sculptures, and installations, to explore how the concept of art is constantly evolving.

You will be amazed at how contemporary artists constantly referenced our lives, emotions, and world.
