6 May-4 June 2011. The former thermoelectric power plant turned museum, with its impressive display of ancient marble statues on show side by side with old diesel engines, steam turbines and other odd bits and pieces, is hosting an interesting jazz festival that animates the space with a double concert every weekend.
The fascinating mix of art and technology serves as a backdrop for Montemartini Blue Note, which presents top class jazz gigs including the Rosario Bonaccorso Quartet TNT featuring Fabrizio Bosso on trumpet (28, 29 May), and the Rita Marcotulli and Luciano Biondini Duo (3, 4 June). Concerts are at 20.00 and 22.00 every Friday and Saturday.
