The three concert halls that comprise Parco della Musica float ideally upon a sea of foliage that opens to embrace the amphitheatre (cavea), which constitutes an urban "focus". It is also the fourth concert hall; though open-air, it is acoustically and technically equivalent to the other three, and seats approximately 3,000 people.
Each of the three indoor concert halls - one dedicated to Santa Cecilia, patron saint of musicians; one to maestro Giuseppe Sinopoli and one to maestro Goffredo Petrassi - was conceived as a true musical instrument and is characterized by specific acoustic idiocyncracies. Besides being architectonically functional, they are structurally separated in order to facilitate acoustic isolation. Each hall is also furnished with recording equipment.
