Macro - Rome Contemporary Art Museum
It was created from the Capitoline structures assigned to promote contemporary art. It has two exhibition spaces: the former Peroni factory and the pavilions of the former slaughterhouse building in Testaccio. The original site, which was created in 1999 from the reconversion of the old factory space of the Peroni brewery, was recently expanded with a major project by the French architect Odile Decq; the permanent exhibition presents artworks by Italian artists from the 1960s to the present day. The complex of the former slaughterhouse, an example of industrial architecture, is a lively area for cultural events and exhibitions.
