Rome’s major classical-music organisation, the Accademia di Santa Cecilia dates back to the 16th century when it was founded by, among others, the Renaissance composer Palestrina. The academy’s programme includes a world-class symphonic season – featuring superstar guest conductors – and short festivals dedicated to single composers. The inhouse orchestra is directed by London-born Italian Antonio Pappano, who is also musical director of London’s Royal Opera House.
