There are several jazz festivals in Rome, but this is one of the biggest. Taking place over nearly three weeks in November, internationally renowned artists and upcoming Italian talent perform, with one performance per night. Each year there is a different theme, whether it’s historical, social or cultural and an exhibition is curated to accompany the festival. The Rome Jazz Festival has been running for 40 years, and has become an important date in the calendar for jazz lovers throughout Italy. This year the Roma Jazz Festival celebrates its 40th anniversary with a packed concert programme between the Auditorium Parco della Musica and Casa del Jazz. Over 170 musicians will perform in 4 locations around the city, making this event one of the most important and long-lived Italian realities.
