Since the early 2000s, our concert series in collaboration with Musicaimmagine, L’Orecchio di Giano, has delighted listeners with a varied programme of early Italian music, contemporary Italian and Finnish music. Concerts at Villa Lante give young, promising Finnish musicians the opportunity to perform in Rome. A 1866 Pleyel grand piano is played at Institute concerts. It belonged to Nadine Helbig, a student of Franz Liszt and Clara Schumann, who lived at Villa Lante. The music that was performed at the Helbig’s salon in Villa Lante at the turn of the twentieth century has an important role in the concert series.
