"Its sensual lines seem to draw the energy of the city right up into its belly, making everything around it look timid," wrote the former @nytimes architecture critic Nicolai Ouroussoff. Photographer Giulione Piscitelli took this photo of part of @museomaxxi's exterior, reflecting its surroundings, in 2014.
