Not just art, history and poetry: the Parco archeologico del Colosseo is opening up to music. With support from a media partnership with RAI Radio2, we’re pleased to present the web series “Star Walks: when the PArCo meets music”. The new programming contains 7 episodes split into two distinct series: the first, scheduled to air between April and May, and shot prior to the Italian government’s coronavirus decree, will be released on the PArCo’s YouTube channel starting at 6 PM next Friday, 24 April, with bonus content and extras across all @parcocolosseo and Radio2 social media channels.
In each episode, musicians let their emotions take the lead as they stroll down paths through the PArCo made especially for the series. Affinities and personal associations come to the surface as the artists are interviewed by Radio 2 commentators and accompanied by PArCo archaeologists, leading up to the highlight of many episodes, the live session.
To kick off the first series of Star Walks, the band Zen Circus will be our guests for the first episode, entitled, “The Zen Domus”: together with the band, this first episode also features the Domus Flavia and the Domus Augustana on the Palatine, location of the imperial palace, with breath-taking views over the valley of the Circus Maximus.
Our date with the second artist, who’ll take us for a walk starting at the slopes of the Palatine, is set for 8 May, at the foot of the remains of the Claudian Aqueduct.
