The collections of the MAXXI art present themselves as a strong nucleus that witnesses the national and international artistic production
The MAXXI Architettura collections comprise all those artefacts and documents that, in various ways, represent the material and conceptual complexity of architecture.
The Centro Archivi curates and manages the MAXXI's architecture collections and provides the possibility, inside the Sala Studio, to directly consult the documents and database of its twentieth and twenty-first century collections.
With the my MAXXI card experience the museum full time: unlimited and preferential access, reduced rates to participate to cultural programmes, educational activities and special events.
We need to be able to count on a network of benefactors, both in Italy and abroad, to enhance the museum’s permanent collection, guarantee the conservation of the works and present our public with an engaging cultural programme.

Gilberto Zorio was born in 1944 at Andorno Micca, near Biella. The artist’s research focuses on metamorphosis and alchemistry, exploring natural phenomena of transformation such as evaporation and oxidation. The idea of energy has been a constant theme running through his work; the attention devoted to electricity has led him to incorporate light bulbs, incandescence and phosphorescence in certain pieces, while elsewhere his has used stars and javelins, archetypical forms that evoke energy. His sculpture utilises a vast range of materials from which emerge gigantic steel stars or Pyrex beakers containing liquid solutions balanced on slim steel rods. Suspending these elements in deliberately precarious installations, the artist discusses the tensions and caducity of the physical, chemical and mental world.
