The Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia is one of the oldest musical institutions in the world. Officially founded in 1585, it has evolved over the centuries from an organization of largely "local" musicians to a modern academy and symphonic concert organization of international repute. Situated at the Auditorium Parco della Musica of Rome designed by architect Renzo Piano, is one of the largest music complexes in the world today. The regular season of the Symphonic and Chamber music goes until the end of June, with concert on Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. The principal conductor of the Accademia is Antonio Pappano. The world's most distinguished soloists, conductors and orchestras are regularly present during the season.
