The Parco della Musica Ennio Morricone, designed by Renzo Piano, is the most important urban and cultural intervention completed in Rome since the 1960s. This extraordinary structure stands a few minutes from the city centre, between the banks of the Tiber, the hill of the Parioli district and the Olympic Village. The Auditorium is a sophisticated piece of musical architecture, a large multi-purpose complex, a home for all music and all the arts, capable of satisfying the wishes of different audiences, combining quality and spectacle, culture and entertainment.
The Auditorium’s three main halls, Sala Petrassi (673 seats), Sala Sinopoli (1,133 seats) and Sala Santa Cecilia (2,744 seats), are veritable ‘sound boxes’: three enormous lutes seemingly suspended over a hanging park of over 38,000 square metres. The focus of the project is the large Cavea named after Maestro Luciano Berio. Located in the centre of the three halls, the Auditorium’s Cavea is like a real piazza with the dual function of an open-air theatre and a meeting place for the public.
Managed by the Fondazione Musica per Roma and home to the prestigious Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, the Auditorium Parco della Musica is a living, breathing cultural centre. A place to be experienced to the full!
