Renzo PIANO - (2002) - AUDITORIUM Music Park (ROME - Italy)

Rome's new Auditorium "Parco della Musica", designed by Renzo Piano [http://rpbw.r.ui-pro.com/], was officially opened on April 2002, the Music Park [http://www.auditorium.com/], an oasis located between the Olympic Village and Villa Glori (41°55'47.29" N - 12°28'28.31" E), is jewel worthy of the Eternal City. This great citadel of music, a place Renzo Piano calls of worship "an ancient Greek agora with the perfumes of the Mediterranean. I think that the Romans have discovered a great passion for their Auditorium". Three huge "Sounding Boxes" in lead covered as the domes of the Renaissance and Baroque churches of the Capital. Each hall has its own characteristics, the fruit of previous experience in the acoustics field and designed as musical instruments. These huge sound boxes are structurally separate for acoustic reasons and have different architectonic and functional features. The 700-seat Hall (Petrassi Hall) can play host to concert operas, baroque and chamber music and theatrical plays, but also performances on a symphonic level, thanks to the possibility of moving the walls to open up the stage arch and thus redefine the layout of the stage. The 1200-seat Hall (Sinopoli Hall) is characterised by even greater flexibility regarding both the acoustics and the layout of the stage and stalls, thus offering the possibility of not only a large orchestra and choir, but also ballet and contemporary music. The 2800-seat Hall (Santa Cecilia Hall), the maximum limit for natural acoustics and good listening quality and concentration, is for symphony concerts with large orchestras and choir [http://www.santacecilia.it/]. All the Auditorium's spaces, both external and internal, are purpose built for music, and in this way the large and small rehearsal rooms, the foyer and the amphitheatre also become places for music (the Cavea interesting musical area welcoming up to 3.000 spectators), thanks to their layout and the materials used.
