The first exhibition space has opened at the Museo delle Arti del XXI Secolo, or MAXXI as it is called, in the Flaminio area of Rome. Ravenna-born Margherita Manzelli is showing work depicting emaciated young women, and there is a 110-metre mural entitled "The Emancipation Approximation" by Californian artist Kara Walker (3 Dec-8 Feb 2004). The two-storey building where the show is will eventually house a bookshop, study centre and restaurant. The museum complex has been designed by Anglo-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid, and construction, which began last March, is scheduled for completion in 2006. There is also a multimedia exhibition called "Mobilitaly" illustrating the results of research into architecture and mobility. MAXXI, Via G. Reni 6, tel. 063202438. 11.00-19.00. Mon closed.
