Approximately twenty days completely dedicated to music, in two of the cities which symbolise Italian art and culture. From September 4th to 21st, Milan and Turin are transformed into a stage ready to welcome artists, orchestras, bands, chamber ensembles and performers from 27 countries for the 2014 MITO SettembreMusica.
The calendar presents 182 events tracing the history of this art through different genres which take place in variegated spaces of the two capitals.
From concert halls to churches, from squares to courtyards, ranging to less common locations such as museums, prisons and industrial establishments, the event, now in its eighth edition, aims at being an opportunity for combining the love and passion for music with the chance of discovering these two art cities in all their artistic and architectural splendour, beginning from the inaugurations held on September 4th at the two great temples of opera and classical music, the Teatro Regio and the Teatro alla Scala.
On the occasion of the centenary of the First World War, MITO SettembreMusica has also programmed a series of celebratory initiatives such as the concerts by the Giuseppe Verdi Orchestra and Symphonic Choir of Milan and the film festival developed by Turins National Museum of Cinema. There will also be educational initiatives for young people, through musical education courses, encounters with great masters, children's workshops and projects for schools.
