Auditorium Parco della Musica is a large multi-functional public music complex in Rome, completed in 2002 by the Italian architect Renzo Piano. According to newspapers it’s the biggest and most visited music venue of Europe with over a million visitors per year.
The complex is formed by three main music halls that remind people of different shapes: they were called beetles, scarabs, turtles or even computer mouses. Different styles of music are played in these halls. Everyday there is something going on so check the site for event schedules.
Even if it’s basically focused on music here there are different kinds of manifestations such as the International film festival of Rome in November or literary events. During Christmas time there is also a Christmas market and an Ice skating rink.
Eating or shopping are possible because there are some bars/restaurants, a big book/music store and an art gallery too.
