Rome’s World Music festival held annually on the shores of the little lake in the gardens of Villa Ada is one of the city’s most long-running and continuous initiatives. It offers a programme with interesting multi-ethnic names and international music. Lack of funding for culture is manifest in this year’s programme, which features very few international names. But an evening at Villa Ada is invariably a pleasant one and the festival area opens at 20.00 so that the public can enjoy food and drink from one of the multiethnic food stalls before the music kicks off. Concerts begin at 22.00. Villa Ada, Via di Ponte Salario, tel. 0641734712, 0641734648, 0641707101, 3472481011, www.villaada.org.
