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.
Guided tours are subject to theatre availability and may be cancelled or curtailed at short notice due to performances, rehearsals or other activities in the building.
