MAXXI, the National Museum of 21st Century Arts, is the first Italian national institution devoted to contemporary creativity.
Conceived as a broad cultural campus, MAXXI is managed by a Foundation constituted in the July of 2009 by the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities and headed by Giovanna Melandri.
Since December 2013 Hou Hanru has been the Artistic Director of the museum, which includes MAXXI Architettura, directed by Margherita Guccione, and MAXXI Arte, directed by Bartolomeo Pietromarchi.
The programming of the activities – exhibitions, workshops, conferences, shows, projections, educational projects – reflects MAXXI’s vocation as a place for the conservation and exhibition of its collections but also, and above all, a laboratory for cultural experimentation and innovation, for the study, research and production of the aesthetic contents of our time.
The MAXXI building is a major architectural work designed by Zaha Hadid, located in Rome’s Flaminio quarter and featuring innovative and spectacular forms.
With this great reality Rome Business School wanted to create an interesting collaboration that combines education and culture in an exchange of activities, knowledge and proposals.
In this regard, we had the opportunity to meet Maria Carolina Profilo, Marketing and Development Manager, to discover possible opportunities and synergies.
We discussed with Maria Carolina, also member of our Corporate Advisory Board, further collaborations as MAXXI wanted to provide students of the Rome Business School with facilities to promote culture and to make it accessible to everyone, especially the youngest.
We are extremely pleased with this partnership, as it is the perfect example of how organizations, companies and institutions can have a key role in the personal and professional growth of our #BetterManager4aBetterWorld
