In the year of its 10th anniversary, MAXXI has chosen to give great space to Italian creativity.

The exhibition REAL_ITALY presents the 2017 winning works of the first two editions of the competition held by the MiBACT Italian Council General Direction for Contemporary Creativity. The objectives of the competition: to support and promote Italian artists abroad and to expand public collections, thanks to the production of works by some of the main protagonists of the national contemporary scene.

The result is an analysis of Italy as it is today, through the gaze of art, which reveals the different realities present on the territory, depicting our country’s past and present, identity and memory.
