The Rome Quadriennale (Italian: Quadriennale di Roma, also called in English the Rome Quadrennial) is a foundation for the promotion of contemporary Italian art.


Its name derives from the four-yearly exhibitions it is required to host by its constitution. It is based in Rome in the monumental complex of Villa Carpegna.


All the Rome Quadriennale main exhibitions held at its historical site, the Palazzo delle Esposizioni of Rome, except where indicated.
