There are currently 3 free photo exhibits in Rome about music in general, rock and pop.

Until February 27 in the former Rome soccer club Monti, Simone Cecchetti will display his beautiful photos of some of the most famous stars of contemporary music: from Madonna to Lady Gaga to Oasis’ Noel Gallagher just to name a few. “Visions” tries to capture what you can’t hear and the captions are superb (only in Italian, though) with great insights on the music played by the characters and on the technical details of each photo. In Via Baccina 66. Monday to Saturday, 3pm-9pm.

One of Rome’s trendiest clubs, Room 26, will host until May 2 an exhibit of photos about music in general, in all countries, and all contexts. “I Love Music” collects the pictures of 6 major Italian photographers who strongly believe that arts can interact and benefit from each other: Emiliano Cataldo, Mimmo Cattarinich, Stefano Esposito, Rodolfo Fiorenza, Fernanda Veron and Pino Settanni. Piazza Guglielmo Marconi 31. 6:30pm-11:30pm, Tuesday to Saturday.

In Rome’s most famous music venue, Auditorium Parco della Musica, a photo showing of Mick Jagger will take place until March 27. 70 portraits by photographers from all over the world of this rock star and style & fashion icon. “Mick Jagger – the Photobook” spans several decades of performances by the Rolling Stones’ leader, from the first shots of the 1960s by Goodwin, Mankowicz and Perier to the very recent portraits of Annie Leibovitz, Anton Corbijn and Mark Seliger. From 11am to 6 pm. Always Open.
