Posted 11.07.2014 by Leigh

Date(s): 01.07.14 - 07.09.14. Venue: Museo Nazionale di Castel Sant'Angelo, Lungotevere Castello 50, 00186 Rome, Italy.

Hadrian's Mausoleum (Castel Sant'Angelo in Italian) in Rome is a must-see sight when visiting the Eternal City. It is one of the largest funerary monuments in Italy and construction was commissioned by Emperor Hadrian in 123AD; its purpose was to be a resting place for himself and his family. It was once the tallest building in Rome and has also been used as a fortress for the popes until becoming a museum which remains its current status. The annual 'Summer Nights' event starts at the beginning of July at the museum and ends on the 7th September. The museum will be open at night for guided tours and visitors will have access to areas normally closed off to the public, such as the 'Passetto di Borgo' passageway, the Old Prisons and the Mole (the 16th-century mill that served the castle). Furthermore, there will be an extravaganza of live jazz and classical music to accompany the event. Taking place in the Balestra courtyard will be 40 classical music and jazz concerts that in total will feature over 100 amazingly talented musicians.
