You might not expect to find modern architecture on the UNESCO protected Amalfi Coast, which makes this Auditorium all the more exceptional.
Via della Repubblica, 12, Ravello, Salerno, Italy
Opened in 2010, the Auditorium Oscar Niemeyer in Ravello is the Amalfi Coast's only work of modern architecture. Designed by the famous Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, the auditorium is located on the steep mountainside below the center of Ravello. Its geometric white lines form a striking outline on a sunny day and offer a modern way of viewing the natural landscape of the Amalfi Coast. Even if you cannot attend a concert or performance, the views are lovely from the terrace of the Auditorium overlooking the Amalfi Coast.
