The largest European structure dedicated to the music, the famed architect Renzo Piano, is a complex of three large rooms that are reminiscent of “beetle” with volumetric forms in addition to a large auditorium and outdoor areas. The complex includes the restored ruins of an ancient Roman villa “that appeared during the excavation for the construction, which was later integrated whole.

The Auditorium Parco della Musica represents a sophisticated music architecture and an extraordinary urban improvement work.

Its history started in 1993 when the City of Rome published a new international call of tender to find “home” to the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia who was left without its original headquarter: in 1935 Mussolini demolished the old Augusteo built on the Mausoleum of Augustus.

The City of Rome provides a public area located between the Olympic Village and the Flaminio Stadium, a completely run-down and abandoned area just few kilometres from the city centre along via Flaminia. The aim was to fill a gap, an urban rift: “transforming the suburbs or those places forgotten by the city development in urban areas can be achieved by giving these gaps collective and gathering functions….” (Renzo Piano).
