Traffic diversions for Rome concert by Thegiornalisti on 7 September.
An open-air concert by popular Italian band Thegiornalisti will take place in Rome's Circus Maximus on Saturday 7 September, leading to numerous road closures and traffic diversions over the weekend.
The band, formed in Rome in 2009 and led by Tommaso Paradiso, will be the first Italian act to perform in the prestigious location which in recent years has hosted the likes of The Rolling Stones, Roger Waters, Bruce Springsteen and David Gilmour.
About 20,000 people are expected for the "Love al Massimo" concert which will also feature support acts including Elisa, Calcutta, Luca Carboni, Dardust, Takagi & Ketra, and Franco 126. Tickets for the concert are still available.
Traffic diversions will be in place in the Circo Massimo area from 15.00 on Friday 6 September until 05.00 on Sunday morning.
Via dei Cerchi will be closed to traffic from Piazza di Porta Capena and Via di S. Teodoro. From 14.00 on Saturday 7 September other streets will be closed: Viale del Circo Massimo (from Viale Aventino to Via dell'Ara Massima di Ercole), Via della Greca and Piazza Bocca della Verità.
The road closures will lead to the diversions of bus lines 81, 118, 160, 628, 715 and C3, while the Circo Massimo metro station is expected to close at 23.00.
