Auditorium Parco della Musica

The Rome Auditorium is a multi-functional complex dedicated to music, contributing to enrich the already immense patrimony of the Eternal City.

The project is dominated by three “harmonic cases” that seem to fly above a sea of vegetation.


A structure of this kind could not have been built in Rome's densely-packed historic centre. The site chosen for the construction of the Auditorium is on the narrow plain that stretches from the banks of the Tiber to the Parioli hill, located between the Olympic Village built for the 1960 Games and the Palazzo dello Sport and Stadio Flaminio, designed by Pierluigi Nervi.


A site removed from the city centre offered the advantage of being able to welcome and easily handle a large public (thanks to pre-existing infrastructure nearby), as well as occupying a space that for a long time had been a kind of artificial fracture, a “hole” in the city fabric.


The “city” of “music” thus became a new urban element. The fracture has now been absorbed in a park of some 30,000 square metres, planted with 400 trees. The luxurious vegetation that acts as a link with the Roman quarter of the Flaminio, adjacent to Villa Glori, opens to leave space for an pen-air theatre, an urban focal point that provides space for a fourth hall outdoors, designed for staging shows and concerts and capable of seating around 3,000 spectators.


The complex also includes a series of spaces for commercial, recreational, exhibition and study activities.

The entire project respects all existing Italian legislation relating to visual and motor disabilities. Those with motor disabilities have been provided with security exits, fire-proof elevators, safe locations and a reserved seats in concert halls. Tactile maps and route-ways have been designed for those with visual disabilities.



The entire urban space and architecture to the implementation of large complex musical Auditorium revolves around the idea of the centrality of the main music. 
All spaces, both internal and external, are designed in a functional manner to the music. For the musical activities do not exist then only three rooms, but also the Studio Theatre, Studies 1, 2, 3, the foyer and the auditorium. 

The three rooms of different sizes and different functional purpose, they are able to cover all the musical demands required: the Sala Santa Cecilia, intended for symphonic concerts for large orchestra and chorus; Sala Sinopoli characterized by a greater flexibility acoustics, adaptable to many different types of music also by virtue of the different positions assumed by the orchestra to the audience; Sala Petrassi, thanks to changes in both the sitting position of the public, both the position of the sound sources, both of the reverberation time of sound, is aimed at the newest and most contemporary musical genres, including theater plays and movies. The Studio Theatre, with its 350 seats is a multifunctional space. 

Studio 1, 2, 3, are important areas of music, just more technical, which allow you to perform the tests always in optimum acoustic conditions. 

The foyer same, on special occasions, is able to accommodate simple musical performances. 

The Cavea, which is the heart of the Auditorium outdoor amphitheater, which can accommodate up to 3,000 spectators, is finally a musical space particularly interesting. 
In addition to all these activities purely musical, a new auditorium also offers spaces for conferences, debates, meetings with composers and performers; study and research (library and music library); Teaching (and research laboratories vocal music and multimedia). Places where perfect spots such as the bookshop, bar, restaurant.


This room is designed primarily for symphonic music. Its peculiarity acoustics, the reverberation time is 2.2 seconds allows, in an optimal condition of listening, performing also works in concert form, sacred music, chamber and contemporary art.
The architectural design as a whole achieves a volume of 30,000 cubic meters.
The supporting structures of coverage, with special dimensions, are constructed by warping of laminated wood beams, associated with steel elements.
The stage is almost central position, surrounded by the "vineyard" seating arranged on ledges at different levels, which are built around the orchestra.
The ceiling, a true conceptual innovation, consists of 26 shells in American cherry wood, each of which has an average area of about 180 square meters. The wood also holds the stalls and galleries making the room a sound box from the acoustic behavior optimal.


This room contains mostly symphonic music, with or without chorus, and chamber music, and is marked by the great flexibility of the stage.
In fact the adaptable size of the stage, the choir, the orchestra and workstations allow the public, both in the audience that backstage, to play with the reverberation of the sound and offer the possibility to accommodate dance performances, concerts of contemporary music and more.


The smaller room is a true musical theater with orchestra pit and stage equipped with the possibility of change of scene and costume.
The two short walls of the stage can be rotated 90 degrees making a traditional proscenium curtain with Italian so as to allow the representation of operas and plays. Conversely, when the same walls are closed, creating a stage in so-called "open stage" allowing you to perform concerts of chamber music, baroque and symphonic music, theater pieces and the representation of the projection of films.


The large foyer, which combines access to three rooms, is not only a point of meeting and gathering, but also a multipurpose area that houses inside the exhibition space "Resonance" and the Archaeological Museum Auditorium.
Along the Foyer leads a light path of 20 installations, made ​​with neon Tuscan artist Maurizio Nannucci. The work of a permanent character, was conceived and designed exclusively for the Auditorium Parco della Musica.


The Cavea entitled to Maestro Luciano Berio, is physically the focus of the project: its dual function as open-air theater and the square, making it the centerpiece of the new centrality of the complex compared to the urban system.
The Cavea has become over time a meeting point, a place increasingly included in the urban assuming a real function of the square.
