The Peduncolo Hall, an area of more than 300 sqm inside the Auditorium, now permanently hosts the 161 works of art purchased by the maestro Giuseppe Sinopoli, a passionate collector, from the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism.
The works of art are important archaeological finds that span from the Minoan pottery of the 3200 B.C., to works from Magna Graecia of 300 B.C., witnesses of the various transitional phases that led to the birth and development of the different cultures.
Behind the big transparent cases, there are examples of the Minoan, Mycenaean, geometrical, Corinthian, Laconia, East-Greek, Attica black-and-red-figure, Italiote black-figure productions and indigenous pottery from Apulia. There is also a marble pot of Cycladic production (3200-2700 B.C.), Etruscan and Magna Graecia bronze crockery and a large series of mainly votive statues with deities and devoted, but also animals. The Attica finds are of exceptional quality: there are works of the most important painters of black figures, like Lydos, the Lysippides Painter, exponents of the Nikostenes group and the Attica painters of red figures, as the Syleus and Eretria Painter.
Among all the finds, what stand out are some unusual pieces, like a terracotta cube painted in concave sides of uncertain intended purpose, perhaps a toy for children, a dough pitcher with spout or a baby bottle.
The works for renewing and setting up of the museum, according to the project of Alvisi Kirimoto’s office, have been made thanks to the funds from the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism and the subsidies from the Chamber of Commerce of Rome.

The Fondazione Musica per Roma was established in 2004 after changing the original business name of public limited company that was founded in 1999. The Musica per Roma Foundation manages the Auditorium Parco della Musica. The large structure designed by Renzo Piano has established itself as an extraordinary "culture factory". Musica per Roma Foundation promotes its development through a rich and varied music programming, film premieres, theatre performances, art exhibitions, literary festivals, major events and exhibitions as well as congresses, conferences, and institutional meetings.
The Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia is one of the oldest musical institutions in the world. Officially founded in 1585, it has evolved over the centuries from an organization of largely "local" musicians to a modern academy and symphonic concert organization of international repute. Uniting an academic body of 100 of the most illustrious exponents of culture and music with a symphonic orchestra and chorus that are among the most internationally renowned, the Accademia carries out professional musical training and conserves an extremely rich historical patrimony, thus reflecting its own multi-century history.
The Fondazione Cinema per Roma was established in February 2007 to promote cinema at a local, national and international level. Always committed to revitalize and support the audiovisual industry in Rome and the Lazio region with an artistic and industrial approach, it supports the dissemination of film culture among audiences, especially young people.
