Show content of About the Exhibition

With Opera Opera. Allegro ma non troppo, the PalaisPopulaire is showcasing an exhibition dealing with the Opera that is as singular as it is beloved—and an elementary aspect of Italian culture. Conceived by MAXXI National Museum of the 21. Century Arts in Rome and curated by Hou Hanru, Bartolomeo Pietromarchi, and Eleonora Farina, the show reveals the rich and complex meaning of “opera,” at once as a conceptual category and a form, from the perspective of contemporary visual and sound art as well as architecture through a wide selection of significant artworks from the MAXXI Collection.

The large-scale exhibition fills the entire space and transforms the PalaisPopulaire into a unique artwork with four thematic sections: Backstage (Gallery 2), Prelude (Gallery 1), Theatre of the Everyday (Gallery 3), and Stage (Terrace).
