The Auditorium Parco della Musica, designed by Renzo Piano and completed on December 21st 2002, represents the most important city and cultural plan ever realized in Rome since the 1960s. The extraordinary complex is few minutes away from the city centre and stands between the Tiber banks, the quarter Parioli hill and the Olympic Village. A sophisticated music architecture, a big multifunctional complex, home to all the kinds of music and all the arts that satisfy different audience needs, combining quality and performance, culture and fun.

The three main halls, Petrassi Hall (700 seats), Sinopoli Hall (122 seats) and Santa Cecilia Hall (2,800 seats), are real “sound boxes”, three huge lutes suspended on hanging gardens of more than 30,000 square meters. The project is focused on the big Cavea, whose name is homage to the composer Luciano Berio. It is placed in the middle of the three halls and is the real heart of the entire complex, intended as an open-air theatre and a meeting place. The Auditorium Parco della Musica, run by Fondazione Musica per Roma and headquarters of the prestigious Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, is a living and vibrant centre of culture. A place to be experienced!
