4A Via Guido Reni, Rome, 00196, Italy

If the Palazzo Esposizioni is lots of things to a wide audience, the Museum for the Art of the Twenty-First Century, which opened in the summer of 2010, proposes a more resolutely contemporary agenda: solo shows from first-rate artists such as South African William Kentridge and arte povera movement founder Michelangelo Pistoletto share gallery space in the soaring, vibrantly elastic Zaha Hadid-designed building. The lovely alfresco cafe and an excellent bookshop are housed in the facing building – one Hadid preserved from the original plan of the square.
