If you happen to be in Rome and surroundings this summer, don’t miss the unique opportunity to dive into spectacular architectures, listening to live ancient music. As part of the Art City 2017 program, “In Musica” – curated by Cristina Farnetti – opens some of the most beautiful museums and archeological sites to curious visitors, who will walk and discover the sixteenth-century frescoes of Castel Sant’Angelo and the Renaissance garden of Villa Lante di Bagnaia; the Romanesque rigour of the Church of San Pietro in Tuscania; the architectural grandeur of Palazzo Farnese di Caprarola and the breathtaking views of the sea of the Archaeological Museum of Sperlonga, passing by the surprisingly unknown Castle of Giulio II in Ostia Antica and the Gothic Casamari Abbey in Veroli. Eight appointments with great international ancient music interpreters such as Mala Punica, Rinaldo Alessandrini, Concerto Italiano and Siebe Henstra, to name a few.
