History and Description Palazzo delle Esposizioni

After the first plans had been drawn up for the construction of a special Palazzo delle Esposizioni, an architectural competition was held. Pio Piacentini‘s project emerged as the winner. This was quite an achievement, as he had had competition from 73 other designs.

Work began in 1830 and the inauguration was three years later.

Visitors to the Palazzo delle Esposizioni, besides enjoying the various exhibitions, can also visit a restaurant, a café and a large bookstore.

The museum also features a cinema hall, an auditorium and a Forum, which can be used for several purposes.

The museum consists of three floors, covering more than ten thousand square meters and hosting various cultural events.

There are art exhibitions, but also archaeological and anthropological ones. Films are shown and there are concerts and performances of theatrical productions.

The bookstore hosts presentations and sometimes photo exhibitions.

The palace was reopened in 2008, after a restoration that had taken 5 years.
