True to form, Zaha Hadid's long-awaited MAXXI museum in Rome is bold, demanding and provocative, says Rowan Moore.

It is clearly intended to send a message that Rome's spectacular history of architecture is not over.

It is something you can not comprehend in one go, that has to be unravelled trough walking around.
