Auditorium – Parco della Musica



The Auditorium Parco della Musica, designed by Renzo Piano, revolves around the main idea of the centrality of music. All spaces, both external and internal, are functional to this idea. Concerts and musical events take place in the three main halls (Santa Cecilia, Sinopoli, Petrassi), but also in the Studio Theatre, in Studies no. 1, no. 2 an no. 3, in the foyer and the cavea. The three main rooms of different size and different functional purpose, can cover all the requested musical needs.




With the design of MAXXI, the recently deceased architect Zaha Hadid goes beyond the idea of the museum as building. The complexity of the volumes, the curvilinear walls, the variation and the interweaving of the proportions result in a very complex spatial and functional plot that visitors can cross by following different and always unexpected paths.




With the construction of the NUVOLA (the Cloud) in the “boxed” space of the outer Teca (display case), the Architect Fuksas highlights the   comparison between the freedom of spatial articulation with no rule whatsoever and a geometrically defined form. The NUVOLA is, undoubtedly, the architectural element most characteristic of the entire project: the steel rib structure, creating an extraordinary visual effect, is covered by a transparent sheet of 15,000 square meters
