On Saturday night Rome will be turned into a huge stage for live music for the second edition of Musei in Musica (Museums in Music). After last year’s massive participation – about 60,000 people – on November 20 up to 100,000 are expected to show up.
From 8pm to 2am, more than 100 events will animate the night of 47 cultural sites in Rome: many museums and exhibition halls, universities, academies and international institutions, places of worship and other places of cultural interest will be open and completely free of charge.
Italy’s top jazz pianist Enrico Pieranunzi will play at Musei Capitolini. Italian, Greek, Estonian and Norwegian folk music will be on stage at Macro Testaccio. World music star Idan Raichel from Israel will sing at Casa dell’Architettura, while Mexican classic guitarist Juan Carlos Laguna will delight the crowd at Palazzo delle Esposizioni. Other Latin American tunes, Argentina’s Milonga, will be played at Galleria Alberto Sordi. A very original show will take place at Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna, where Francesco Cerasi has created music commentaries to the artworks in exposition.
These are just a few ideas we found inspiring. But for the complete program of the 47 locations and music performances, look here
