a visit to a squat doesn't rank high on your list of holiday
priorities, think again. As any local musician will tell you,
the best place to feel the pulse of Rome's music scene is
in the Centri Sociali - semi-legal social centres organising
concerts, film screenings, theatre and dance events, evening
classes, language courses and a host of other activities.
Some bands such as Rage Against the Machine play only
in the Centri.
Prenestino (Italian) - a former 19th century explosives
depot houses this long established centro, with bars, cinema,
concerts and other attractions.
Strada (Italian) - cinema, concerts and courses.
(Italian) - born in 1990, Brancaleone has become the best
run centro sociale in town: music, cinema and social services.
Globale (Italian) - one of the biggest centri in Rome,
they offer counselling, courses, labs, a hostel, a wine bar,
a beer house, a tea room and much more.
Podere Rosa (Italian) - a lot of initiatives.
