Marco Mengoni to play Rome concert at Circus Maximus on 15 July

Sanremo winner to perform at Circus Maximus.

Italian singer-songwriter Marco Mengoni, who won this year's Sanremo Music Festival, will play a concert at the Circus Maximus in Rome on Saturday 15 July.

The event, which comes one week after Guns N' Roses performed at the coveted Roman venue, will lead to road closures and traffic restrictions in the area, starting the day before the concert.

Mengoni, 34, represented Italy at the Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool in May, coming fourth in the competition with his song Due Vite.

The pop star will conclude his ongoing tour of Italy with the Circus Maximus concert, due to start at 21.00, in front of an estimated 45,000 fans.

Mengoni rose to fame in 2009 after he won Italy's version of X Factor before going on to win Sanremo - for the first time - in 2013.

The Circus Maximus has hosted several major acts in recent years, from The Rolling Stones to Maneskin, with Bruce Springsteen playing his second concert there in May.
