Tribute to the origins could be another title for the show with which MAXXI in Rome celebrates the pencil from which it was created as well as the life and works of the archistar Zaha Hadid. This archistar, who recently died, was also the artist of some structures that have redesigned the modern world.
Zaha Hadid’s Italy: the work of the visionary English-Iraqi designer in an exhibition curated by Margherita Guccione and Woody Yao, in collaboration with the Zaha Hadid Architects firm and the Zaha Hadid Foundation will be hosted for six months from 23 June 2017 to 14 January 2018 in the rooms of the contemporary art museum of the Italian capital city.
At the centre of the event, the creativity expressed in the testimonies that include pictorial sketches, three-dimensional models, three-dimensional studies and the application of new technologies to shape buildings, imagine their functions, investigate and renovate the space around us.
Particular attention will be given to the relationship between Zaha Hadid and Italy, with a focus on the major projects created in our Country, including, only to mention a few, the recently inaugurated Maritime Terminal of Salerno, the Messner Mountain Museum on the Kronplatz, the almost completed City Life project in Milan and the MAXXI in Rome.
An appointment not to be missed for those who want to immerse themselves in the universe of a woman who, with her extraordinary intuition, has been able to shape the contemporary world.
