Recently there have been so many events going on in Rome, it's a struggle trying to get to them all. If you're visiting anytime soon, I really recommend you check online to see if there's anything going on while you're here. One of my favorite things to do while traveling (or in my own city) is to attend special events put on by locals, so I have a chance to see a different side of the culture other than just the museums and monuments. I always look forward to American In Rome's monthly posts about events in Rome where she includes concerts, exhibits, tours, and anything relevant and fun. Otherwise I keep an eye out on Facebook for event pages and also check Rome-ing for their suggestions.
