Rome | Italy | Auditorium | Renso Piano
Rome’s new Auditorium, designed by Renzo Piano, was opened on April 21th 2002. Seven years of work, 175.000.000 Euros investment for this great citadel of music, a place Renzo Piano calls: “both sacred and profane, with a link to the city in its everyday, urban dimension. It also has the spiritual dimension, with music, singing, entertainment”.
Three grey domes emerge inside the immense park (55.000 square meters inclusive of recording studios, restaurants, bars, shops, libraries and museums), floors in red travertine (a tribute to Rome), decorations in lead, concrete and precious wood.
