Bibliography and media library

Boris Vian asked jazz lovers to make a will of their collections, stressing the urgency of saving their heritage. A casket of the Jazz House, the Library was born with this goal in mind. In fact, it collects historical vintages of magazines, rare Italian and foreign publications, hard-to-find trade books, audio-video material (which can be consulted from two audio hi-fi stations and a 42” plasma TV station), and whatever else comes from donations from private individuals. The audiovisual archive is not just a virtual museum of jazz, created solely for the celebration of the past, as much as a vault of new treasures so that one day current events may be remembered as history. With this in mind, many concerts and events held at the House of Jazz have been recorded and guarded with the utmost care. Accessible via multimedia stations, it collects material made available by Teche Rai and musicians: Chet Baker at “International Doc,” Gegè Telesforo’s interview with Miles Davis, Enrico Rava’s quartet radio recordings for “A Certain Speech,” and more.

Bo.Bo Restaurant

Bo.Bo restaurant was born from the idea of creating an unconventional venue in which to give voice to multiple art forms, culinary and musical to delight the palate accompanied by good music. One venue, two souls, an out-of-the-box bohemian where art, design and music meet. Nestled in the beautiful grounds of Villa Osio, behind the Baths of Caracalla, in the heart of Rome a stone’s throw from the center.

Villa Osio

Villa Osio is spread over an area of 2,500 square meters and surrounded by a 25,240-square-meter park of great naturalistic value, open daily from dawn to dusk. Concerts by Italian and international artists are hosted here in seasons that allow.

The Villa, previously owned by Magliana gang boss Enrico Nicoletti, was assigned to the City of Rome after confiscation. A plaque placed at the entrance displays the names of Mafia victims and testifies to the victory represented by its return to the city and its citizens.
