This year marks the 20th anniversary of the birth of MACRO under its current name of Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome.


Starting with this anniversary, two days of talks and roundtables trace the history of the museum, while tracing some key themes of its role and relationship with the city of Rome and its art actors. The starting point of this narrative is related to the personalities who have directed it over the past two decades, invited to narrate the museum, presenting in succession the moments, themes and protagonists that have marked its programming. This is followed by a day devoted to the perspectives of the city and its contemporary art system. Without the ambition of an exhaustive reconstruction, the discussion is rather about some sensitive touchpoints,occurred, ongoing and potential, of the ever-evolving relationship between the museum and its surrounding context.
