Make Music Country of the Week: Italy

Make Music Day

Italy’s Festa Della Musica began in 1985, shortly after the founding of France’s Fête de la Musique. But it’s only in the last few years that it has grown to its current enormous size: 10,707 performances by 34,137 musicians across 571 cities in 2017 (up from “just” 85 participating cities in 2015)!

This year, thousands of free concerts will take place in 14 airports, 24 national parks, 140 ports, all 177 Carrefour supermarket locations, and on countless street corners.

Check out the official website for an up-to-date look at Italy’s huge celebration.
