Entrance of the conservatory
The institution has its roots dated back to the Congregazione de' musici di Roma named after Saint Cecilia in 1565 (now Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia). Since the early 19th-century there was need of a music school in the institution. It was only due to the famed pianist Giovanni Sgambati that led to the opening of the musical institute on 23 May 1870.
In 1911, the Liceo Musicale became an independent entity, and was nationalized in 1919. Only after, it assumed its current name.
