D'Orazio will play in the upper rooms of the National Museum, located behind Uhuru Garden, the square of the change, and the seats will be made all around and on the balcony, but the violinist for each performance will change position, so as to enable all good listening and just as happy vision.
On the ground floor instead they will merge two photographic exhibitions, on the seabed of two different "Africas". The Italian Sicily, historical marine archeology habitats worldwide, and that of Kenya, yet to be discovered and likely future next destination of large studies about, who will also attend the Italian Cultural Institute.
