Renzo Piano Auditorium

Renzo Piano Auditorium

Having become a symbolic place in Rome, Auditorium Parco della Musica, designed by Renzo Piano, had a long history before it opened in 2002. In 1993 the Genovese architect won the competition for the design of the auditorium and there have since been several obstacles to its realisation. Over the past 12 years, many visitors have entered the auditorium, situated near the Flaminio district of Rome. Many come to listen to classical music, some with the family to one of the Family Concerts in program for children and adults, others for a concert at the Cavea and many for the various cultural events that take place for everyone, such as the International Film Festival of Rome.

The Auditorium Parco della Musica is spread over an area of ??approximately 55,000 m2 and has 3 halls: Sala Santa Cecilia, dedicated to the patron saint of music, which is the largest room, the Sala Sinopoli, dedicated to the musical conductor Giuseppe Sinopoli, of intermediate size, and Petrassi Hall, dedicated to the Italian composer who died in 2003, who also wrote film scores of Italian neorealism, which is the smallest room. In addition, the Studio Theatre, 300-seat outdoor amphitheatre with the Cavea which often hosts concerts of light music in the summer complete the Parco della Musica in Rome.

There is various accommodation in Rome from which you can easily reach the Auditorium Parco della Musica. Getting to the Auditorium is simple. By public transportation, just take the bus or M 217 and 910 from Termini Station, or 53 from Piazza San Silvestro, the 231 (only on Sundays) from Piazzale Canestre Villa Borghese or the tram #2 from the Metro Line A stop Flaminio. For those who travel by car there are various signs scattered throughout Rome that point the way to the auditorium, although there are many controversies about the reliability of these signs. However, in the era of GPS you can not go wrong: Viale Pietro de Coubertin, 30 and you will find Rome's music!
