Macro Museum

The Macro is a museum of contemporary art.
Lovers of industrial architecture must not forego a visit to the pavilions of the Macro Museum, originally built as a slaughterhouse. Today, the building houses the best of contemporary art in the capital and according to the New York Times is one of the places you should not miss. Located not far from the Tiber in the Testaccio quarter, it was built at the end of the 1800s by Gioacchino Ersoch. Part of the premises have been renovated and now hosts cultural events and exhibitions. Renovation has only been partial and it is still possible to stroll through vast areas where rust, silence and ceramics reign supreme.
