The concerts will be held every Friday evening throughout May, June, July, September and October, suspended only during the month of August. The Vatican Museums will therefore set the scene for 21 unmissable appointments with Art, 21 concerts of the most varied nature, to be held in different historical rooms each time, from the Gregorian Profane Museum to the Raphael Room, from the Terraces of the Picture Gallery to the Cortile della Pigna.
Every Friday, by simply purchasing the normal entry ticket to the Vatican Museums (online booking obligatory), the visitor will be able to attend one of the concerts in the programme of Il Bello da Sentire without incurring any additional cost.
Il Bello da Sentire is the fruit of a collaboration between the Vatican Museums, La Venaria Reale and the “Giuseppe Verdi” State Conservatory of Turin. These prestigious institutions have collaborated to produce a programme that makes the excellence of Art its distinctive feature. The Vatican Museums and the Venaria Reale guarantee a backdrop that is unique in the world, thanks to their rooms rich in art and history; the “Giuseppe Verdi” Conservatory of Turin will complete the picture with a rich and variegated programme of concerts, entrusting in the excellence of its musicians. All the musical performances will start at 8.30 pm and will last for 60 minutes, thereby leaving enough time for visitors to continue their visit through the various sectors of the museum, including the Sistine Chapel</pZ

Portrait of a city, Art in Rome, 1960-2001.

ritratto-citta-roma-1960-2001The exhibition Portrait of a city. Art in Rome, 1960-2001 offers a glimpse of collecting contemporary, with an emphasis on the Roman scene. The works on display – mostly loans from major private companies of Rome, collectors, galleries, critics, curators and the artists themselves, as well as some works from the collection of MACRO – return the artistic memory of the city, focusing on the perspective historical, from the early sixties, comes to the present day.
Portrait of a city is thought of as a great visual atlas is divided into a timeline and more than 50 works, including sculptures, installations and paintings. The timeline, a route with photos, videos, posters and documents, develops on the largest wall of the room Enel (about 45 meters long), establishing a continuous dialogue with the works, arranged according to a chronological division. The exhibition is also designed to be continually updated and implemented, both in the documentary that the rotation of the works on display.
With this mapping geographical and historical reality on the art of Rome – that they have and they are setting up the story – the MACRO becomes a great research laboratory can provide a critical service permanent on the various works and documents which, in turn, will be loaned or donated to the museum.
