Activities and locations
of Casa del Jazz

The Casa del Jazz, situated in Viale di Porta Ardeatina inside a large park, consists of three buildings that host different activities. Inside the main building, there is a multipurpose auditorium with 150 seats: this is used for live concerts, film shows and discussion sessions.

A sophisticated recording system enables records and discs to be produced, thus allowing concerts and events hosted in the Casa del Jazz to be immortalized and made available to a wider public.

There is also an extensive audio-visual archive in the building, which can be consulted through multimedia access points, and there is a library that is open to the public. As regards the other two buildings, one houses rehearsal and recording rooms and accommodation for guest musicians, while the other houses a restaurant. The Casa del Jazz was a project dear to the heart of former mayor of Rome, Walter Veltroni, and it derived from the confiscation of a Villa belonging to Enrico Nicoletti, the boss of the Banda della Magliana criminal gang, which was subsequently handed over to the Rome Municipal Council. A memorial stone at the entrance, engraved with the names of mafia victims and made in collaboration with Don Ciotti’s anti-mafia Libera association, testifies to the victory represented by the restoration of the villa to the city and its citizens.
