90 works from the MAXXI Art collection will be exhibited along a single route winding inside and outside the museum (including examples by Alighiero Boetti, William Kentridge, Giuseppe Penone and Francesco Vezzoli) in an open dialogue with the site-specific installations of ten international architects and architectural studios (including Diller, Scofidio e Renfro, Lacaton & Vassal Architects and West 8).


The visitor will be guided through an exploration of the complex concept of space understood in both the environmental senses, as a place of imagination and as a political and social dimension.

The exhibition will include:

Italian geographies
Curated by Maristella Casciato, Pippo Ciorra and Margherita Guccione, produced by Studio Azzurro.
A 40-metre-long video installation recounting sites, protagonists and stories of Italian architecture and design from the mid-twentieth century to the present through drawings, photographs, interview and film clips reworked and assembled by Studio Azzurro.

NETinSPACE
Curated by Elena Giulia Rossi
An exploration of Net Art investigating the contaminations between the virtual and physical worlds through the works of artists including Miltos Manetas, Bianco-Valente and Stephen Vitiello.

The winners of the international MAXXIduepercento competition: 
Linee rette di luce nell’iperspazio curvilineo by Maurizio Mochetti            
An installation of light and sculptural elements that is both essential and surprising. The work tackles the relationship between visitor and site, becoming in the process, as the artist says, a “spatial barometer”. 

Emergency’s Paediatric Centre a Port Sudan Supported by MAXXI 
by Massimo Grimaldi            
Work-in-progress images will document all phases in the construction and opening of the new Emergency hospital at Port Sudan, the reportage being presented in a synchronised dual-video projection on a MAXXI external wall.

There will also be a tribute to Fabio Mauri
