Until 30 March 2014, the MAXXI in Rome devotes an exhibition of seventy works from the museum collection to the photographer Gabriele Basilico. The itinerary is designed in compliance with the thought of the master that the observation and acceptance of the current landscape and the urban condition could serve as a good starting point to imagine a better city and future.

The exhibition entitled "Gabriele Basilico - Photographs from the collections of Maxxi" is divided into five sections that tell a happy collaboration and a cross-section of the short history of the museum. The exhibition begins with "Atlante italiano 003 - Portrait of Italy changing" a research in which Basilico helped photographing the change of the Strait of Messina, to proceed with "Glimpses contemporaries - Fifty years of Italian architecture."

The next step is the photo campaign dedicated to building of the work of Zaha Hadid, in which Basilico tells the final phase of work on the Maxxi in "Yard of the author - Architecture and photography for the Maxxi in progress." Another area is devoted to "Luigi Moretti - From Rationalism to" and finally "The Cities," a series of fifteen photographs purchased from Maxxi which testify to the changes in the urban landscape in Italy and abroad from 1980 to 2003.
