Modern Art in Rome: Big Bambú

Rome is known for its ancient works of art, but rising from the courtyard of the MACRO Museum the Big Bambú is creating quite a buzz. The creation of American artists and twin brother Mike and Doug Starn, the Big Bambú is a 25m (85ft) high structure of 8,000 bamboo poles linked and interlocked with nylon cords. At first glance it looks like artsy chaos but the secure construction allows visitors to explore freely. The multi-level construction features paths and walkways as well tables and chairs. It will continue to grow and evolve during the exhibition. There are plans to build a crow’s nest to highlight the views available from the top. Visitors are required to wear closed toe shoes. Bring a pen with you speed up the process of signing the required waiver. Big Bambú is scheduled to run until October 31, 2013. Admission is free.

What Our Guests Say…

30 – Chelsae & Eric

Our honeymoon has been amazing! Much of that is because of all the help from Melissa & Francois. They not only dealt with our lost luggage but made wonderful recommendations on things to do, other cities to see and places to go. We will be back to visit this beautiful city and when we do will be staying at Nicolas Inn.
