In the presence of the president of the Fondazione MAXXI, Pio Baldi, the directors of MAXXI Architettura and MAXXI Arte, Margherita Guccione and Anna Mattirolo and the president and the vice-president of the Pierresvives Cultural Centre of Montpellier, André Vezinhet and Jacques Atlan, a draft agreement was signed that will lead to the two institutions working together on the organization of cultural projects and events.
The agreement reached with the Pierres Vives Cultural Centre of Montpellier further reinforces MAXXI’s international vision. It is interesting to note, in this case, that Zaha Hadid designed the buildings housing both European cultural institutions.
The inauguration of the Pierres Vives Cultural Centre of Montpellier is scheduled for September 2012.
