Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Roma, usually known as MACRO, is a municipal contemporary art museum in Rome, Italy. The museum is housed in a former brewery in Via Nizza, in the Salario quartiere of the city; and a former slaughterhouse in Piazza Orazio Giustiniani, in the quartiere of Testaccio. The building complex represents a rare example of industrial archaeology within a city.

MACRO’s permanent collection includes a selection of some of the most significant expressions of the Italian art scene since the 1960s, such as the group Forma with the works by Carla Accardi, Antonio Sanfilippo, Achille Perilli, Piero Dorazio, Leoncillo and Ettore Colla; the Arte Povera with Mario Ceroli and Pino Pascali; the Scuola di Piazza del Popolo with Tano Festa, Mario Schifano, Titina Maselli and Mimmo Rotella.
