Museo del Saxofono to open in Maccarese near Rome.
Italy's first museum dedicated entirely to saxophones is to open in Maccarese, a coastal district near Rome, on 7 September.
The Museo del Saxofono houses around 600 intruments from the world's largest collection of saxophones, assembled over 30 years by musician and academic Attilio Berni, ranging from the 32-cm sopranissmo saxophone to the 2-m double bass.
The museum, which has the patronage of the Lazio Region, the town of Fiumicino and the embassy of Belgium to Italy, will also offer concerts, workshops and music lessons.
The inauguration at 18.00 on 7 September is free and open to all, and will include live music - played on saxophones, naturally.
For full details see Museo del Saxofono website.
