The area
Neighbourhood: Testaccio
Put the house music on replay and you have Testaccio, an ancient Roman port and former working class neighbourhood where the bass is set to high almost every night of the week. Its collection of discoteche (nightclubs), street parties, and crowded restaurants give it its well-deserved party reputation. During the daytime, Testaccio is more easy listening than club hit, the area is full of locally owned small businesses and has one of the city's larger produce markets.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Originariamente complesso di padiglioni destinati alla macellazione e distribuzione della carne di Roma. Bella la struttura, risalente al 1888; collocata nel quartiere Testaccio è infatti correntemente chiamato Mattatoio di Testaccio. Dismesso nel 1975, da allora ha subito una serie di ristrutturazione che ne hanno fatto un suggestivo polo cultural-museale dove gli attori principali oggi sono i giovani dell'Accademia di Belle Arti, della Facoltà di Architettura dell'Università di Roma Tre; la sovrintendenza ai beni culturali ed altre associazioni. Destinato, ovviamente anche ad attività e manifestazioni artistiche e culturali temporanee, oltre che a spazi espositivi. Insomma un interessante recupero

Bella la location, ricavata dal vecchio mattatoio di Roma nel quartiere Testaccio. Siamo andati a vedere la mostra fotografica della 64° edizione del World Press Photo, al costo interno di 8 euro a persona. Belle foto, anche se purtroppo ci sono le foto di guerra, disastri ambientali e disastri naturali. Potrebbe ospitare molte altre mostre, ma secondo me è sottoutilizzata. Comodo posteggio gratuito. Gentile il personale della struttura. Da tornarci.

A truly beautiful structure where I have been to see various exhibitions but also conventions and exhibition fairs. If you are on foot it is a little far from the "living" center of the city but it is worth it. Maybe take the metro and in a few minutes you'll be there in the area. Advised.

Ex-slaughterhouse which was built in 1888 and supplied the Romans with meat until 1975. Since then it has been abandoned and forgotten for a long time but in recent years it has been valorized and there is a weekly market here on weekends while on the other days you can visit exhibitions here. Some of the old buildings are used by the local university, which will soon expand further (other buildings will be restored). Somewhat ridiculous is a Ukrainian flag in front of the entrance with the word Peace: hung by people who do not know the big connections and plans. It would be enough to read a book by Ganser.

Entri e sei in un altro mondo, un'oasi di pace, dove convivono locali, installazioni artistiche, murales, mucchi di immondizia, angoli abitati da presenze invisibili. Sedetevi bevete qualcosa e rilassatevi

Allora sono andato a vedere una mostra che sinceramente non mi ha lasciato molto! Ma ci sono andato per lo più per vedere la struttura in se, questi posti ex fabbriche mi attirano molto! E la struttura tutta sistemata non sarebbe male! Credo che la stiamo recuperando in quanto ci sono vari lavori in corso! Ma sono rimasto sconcertato vedendo che alcune sue parti sono lasciate in mano agli homeless! Senza offesa per coloro che non hanno una casa che vanno rispettati, ma un polo museale non dovrebbe essere lasciato così mezzo abbandonato a se stesso con letti a cielo aperto, barbecue, immondizia e puzza di urina! Forse sbaglio e mi perdonino coloro che usano questo posto come rifugio! Buona visita a voi Popolo di TripAdvisor! Poi giudicate voi il mio giudizio forse sbagliato! Allego foto della mostra e del resto che ho descritto!
