Palazzo delle Esposizioni is the largest interdisciplinary exhibition area in the centre of Rome: more than 10,000 square metres of space on three floors, Level 0, 1 and 2, host cultural events and offer services to visitors.
The Palazzo also has a 136 seats Cinema, an Auditorium (multimedia hall for 88 people) and a Forum (multifunctional hall), an Atelier (art workshop), as well as a 290 sq.m. café, a 400 sq.m. restaurant for 240 people and a 470 sq.m. bookshop.

Palazzo delle Esposizioni is a space for culture and ideas at an international level, offering visitors high quality projects with excellent technological standards, and efficient and modern hospitality facilities for guests. It is one of the most up-to-date cultural centres, engaging in continuous fruitful exchanges with the most important international cultural institutions.

With the setting up of the Azienda Speciale Palaexpo in 1998, the Palazzo delle Esposizioni assumed a leading role in the cultural activities organized by Rome City Council,  offering integrated services: from art exhibitions to film festivals, from theatre to photography, and from music to presentations of books and events.


The exhibition space, of 3,100sqm in all, covers two floors, LEVEL 1 and 2, making the display areas completely autonomous; a system of vertical wall panels provides a neutral and uniform background to the areas, which lend themselves to any type of exhibition. Visual comfort is further enhanced by the luminous panels with built-in spotlights, which give unity to all the areas. In addition, suspended ceilings diffuse the natural light from the skylights and contain the lighting systems.

The brise soleil on the glass regulates the sunlight, preventing it from penetrating directly into the exhibition rooms. All the rooms are equipped with mobile glass panels to regulate the flow of visitors specifically for each exhibition.
