Movies in Concert

At the Waldensian Auditorium, just a stone’s throw away from Piazza Venezia, you can tickle your taste buds with a delicious pasta tasting followed by a concert full of timeless movie melodies in an intriguing minimalist arrangement. A Roman holiday to die for!
Movies in Concert kicks off at 7:30 pm with a small tasting of delectable pasta varieties that best represent the Roman palate. Once you have satisfied your culinary curiosity for authentic Italian flavours, the musical part of the evening commences at 8:30 pm and takes you on a wonderful ride through cinematic soundscapes.
