Odile Dcq

On December 3rd, 2010, IL MACRO (MUSEO D’ ARTE CONTEMPORANEA DI ROMA)…

…tonight officially opened the stunning new wing designed by the charismatic/punk French architect Odile Decq (who I spent some time with last year while in residence in Oxfordshire for a conference at The Ditchley Foundation), however the inauguration unfortunately coincided with an underattended opening of a couple of new shows at the new MAXXI (Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo) designed by Zaha Hadid on the other side of town – but hey, the lady architects are finally taking their place, and Rome is rousing.
