Giacomo Balla’s House Museum reopens this spring for guided tours as part of a project curated by the MAXXI Museum. Located in the Prati district of Rome, at 39B Via Oslavia, this is the apartment where the great Futurist artist Giacomo Balla (Turin, 1871 – Rome, 1958) lived with his wife Elisa from 1929 until 1958, the year of his death, and where his daughters Elica and Luce lived until the 1990s.
The apartment, which has remained closed until now, has been restored to its original splendor after a long and complex restoration supervised by the Soprintendenza, in collaboration with the Soprintendenza Speciale di Roma Archeologia Belle Arti e Paesaggio, the support of the Direzione Generale Creatività Contemporanea of the MiBACT and the contribution of Banca d’Italia.
Thanks to an agreement with the heirs, through the program Casa Balla. Dalla casa all’universo e ritorno (Casa Balla. From home to the universe and back) curated by the MAXXI Museum, it will finally be possible for everyone to discover the house and the works it contains.
