Art center “Makaronka” is located in the historic part of the city on the territory of former pasta factory, that is where the name comes from (in Russian “makarony” means pasta). Several years ago it became obvious that the city needs a special place for exhibitions and performances, so the territory got a new life. Nowadays there are modern theatre, exhibition space and artists’ workshops functioning under the roof of this creative space. There is a permanent exposition in the gallery, the pride of which are works of Shemyakin, Vinogradov, Dubossarskiy, Burlyuk, Shagal. When events are not held there, “Makaronka” is being rented for private cultural activities: master-classes, recitals and readings, presentations, concerts and fashion shows. All in all, in case citizens of Rostov are searching for modern culture, they come here. On the art center territory you will also find wine room with tasting room, restaurant with original cuisine, library, and even mobile office, where you can leisurely work, so it is easy to spend here the whole day.
