Piano is music to Rome’s ears
The Parco della Musica is a state of the art venue penned by Piano for the diverse musical needs of the Italian capital. The auditorium opened in 2002 in the north part of Rome known as Flaminio, near the Olympic village.
It is composed of three separate halls of 2800, 1200 and 750 in capacity. Positioned around an open-air amphitheatre, the halls look like three enormous “music boxes”, whose colours and materials recall those of the domes dotting the urban landscape of Rome. The interiors are entirely made of cherry wood, most suited to the acoustic challenges. >>>
