Description

Auditorium Parco della Musica is a large multi-functional public music complex in Rome. The complex is situated in the north of the city, in the area where the 1960 Summer Olympic Games were held.

Parco della Musica was designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano. Three large concert halls (Sala Petrassi, in memory of Goffredo Petrassi, about 700 seats; Sala Sinopoli, in memory of Giuseppe Sinopoli, about 1,200 seats; Sala Santa Cecilia, about 2,800 seats) are structurally separated to ensure soundproofing, though joined at the base by a continuous lobby.

A fourth “concert hall”, called Cavea, is the open air theatre recalling ancient Greek and Roman theatres.
