Other information of interest

In 1945, at the end of the Second World War, concert companies in Italy resumed their activities, attracting both the usual audience and a new audience made up of students and young professionals. Between 1945 and 1946, various new concert companies arose, including the Instituto Universitaria dei Concerti a Roma, which focused on younger audiences. The history of the Institution can be divided into four periods. The first period saw the growth of the institution with performances by internationally renowned artists and cultural and educational programs. In 1968, a second period began due to the unusability of the Aula Magna, causing a reduction in the usual audience. The third period saw a dual operational track, with concerts both for the general public and for students and university professors. The fourth period began in 1993, when the Institution returned to its "mother house", the Aula Magna of the University. Today, the Institution represents a significant reality in Italian musical life, unique in its rooting within the university sphere.
