"The Auditorium Parco della Musica of Rome" submitted by RomeTour Editorial Team and last updated on Tuesday 10th January 2012
The Auditorium Parco della Musica of Rome, Europe's largest Music park, completed the opening of its structures with the inauguration of the large hall with 2800 seats, the concept store, the bar area, the bookshop with books and multimedia items, and the restaurant ReD - Restaurant & Design, that offers the expertise of chef Angelo Troiani.
Ever since it was inaugurated on 21 December 2002, the Auditorium Parco della Musica has become a consolidated reality on the cultural scene of both the city of Rome and the entire country, a resounding success in terms of the quality of its programmes and the consistently high audience turnout.
Every year over one million people, including audience and participants in the various events, have visited the complex run by the Musica per Roma Foundation. The facility is not able to finance itself for over 65% of its overall budget. In this regard it should be observed that the Auditorium is more and more a multi-functional arts complex, and the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia has finally made the Auditorium its “home.”

The facility’s concerts of symphonic and chamber music are intertwined with the most varied and versatile of concert programming, from jazz to pop, to rock, world music and beyond; as well as film premieres, stage plays, art exhibits and literary performances. The festivals and other events have fast become ‘musts’ on the cultural calendar, while our halls host more and more fashion shows, conferences, conventions and meetings at an institutional level.
