‘Che c’è di Bello? – Music at the Vatican Museums’
May, June and July 2012
Again this year the Vatican Museums are open ‘by night’ on Fridays throughout the summer (see our blog post); 2012 sees these special opening rendered even more special by a series of accompanying concerts:
… at 21.00, guests will be welcomed by the young and talented professionals of the Conservatory of Frosinone “Licinio Refice” who, against the magnificent backdrop of the Salone di Raffaello or the Pinacoteca Courtyard, not to mention the Sala dei Pontefici, will perform a refined selection of great classical and contemporary music.
Visitors to the Vatican Museums during the night openings will have the chance to experience a redoubled pleasure, that of visible Beauty (Raphael and Michelangelo, Canova and Pinturicchio, the “Laocoonte” and the “Apollo” of the Belvedere), alongside the Beauty that enters and touches the heart, that of the music of Bach and Handel, Vivaldi and Mozart; with these words Professor Antonio Paolucci, Director of the Vatican Museums, presents the new edition of the cultural initiative, “Che c’è di Bello?”, dedicated this year to Music at the Vatican Museums.
