Standing at the foot of the Parioli district and alongside the Olympic Village (Viale Pietro De Coubertin, 30) is the Auditorium “Parco della Musica” which was designed by world renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano and was formally inaugurated in December 2002.
Like magic beetles from an alien civilization, the organic structures of the three concert halls sit around the open-air amphitheatre which also serves as the central piazza for this “City of Music”. The entire multifunctional complex was built using traditional local materials: travertine for the steps and Roman bricks for the foundations.
The concert halls, each differing in size from the other (the largest is Santa Cecilia), have been designed to satisfy every musical taste and requirement and allow for perfect visibility and optimal acoustics. In the high season, several concerts are held in the attractive “Cavea” or open-air amphitheatre located at the very heart of the Auditorium which seats an audience of up to 3,000 people.
Open h. 11:00-18:00
