Make Music Italy
Italy’s Festa della Musica began in 1985, shortly after the founding of France’s Fête de la Musique. In the last few years it has grown enormously, reaching 8,000 performances across the country.
Music Making Across the Country
Countless cultural partners, city governments, music instrument associations, and national ministries contribute to bringing the Festa della Musica to life on a massive scale. The 2018 edition included musical events on June 21 taking place in the country’s 22 airports, 9 rail stations, 46 prisons, 92 official cultural sites, and hundreds of Carrefour grocery stores. In 2019, some 600 cities were involved in hosting more than 8,000 musical events with 50,000 musicians.
