Grand Mosque of Rome - Rome

The Mosque of Rome is located in the Acqua Acetosa zone at the foot of the Monti Parioli, north of the city. As well as being the city's mosque it is the seat of the Centro Culturale Islamico d'Italia: the Italian Islamic Cultural Centre. Financed by Faisal of Saudi Arabia, head of the Saudi royal family, as well as Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, construction work on Europe’s largest mosque began in 1984, ending with its inauguration in the presence of then President of the Republic Sandro Pertini in June, 1995. It was designed and directed by two Italian architects and one Iraqi. With a total area of 30,000 m², it can hold several thousand worshippers and so, in addition to being a meeting place for religious activities, provides cultural and social services variously connecting Shia and Sunni Muslims.
