The open-air Chamber Music Festival in the most evocative places in Italy
From June to September 37 concerts for a journey to rediscover Italy on the notes of culture
37 concerts, 10 regions, hundreds of collateral events scattered in the locations involved. From June to September 2021 the Chamber Music Festival Music with a View, will cross the whole of Italy from Trento to Palermo, opening the most evocative places in our country to the public. A musical journey through the gardens, cloisters and courtyards of historic houses and palaces, which represent an integral part of the Italian identity and cultural heritage. The music of the most representative young people together on the international scene will be the fil rouge of all the cultural activities and the discovery of the territory in the program.
THEobiettivo of the Festival is to create a national system capable of to relate all those subjects that produce Culture relaunching social life. The Festival thus becomes the engine for sustainable, economic, social and civil development of our country.
Music with a View in fact creates a real ecosystem, composed of cultural operators, entities that preserve historical heritage and local communities, within which resources and needs are entangled in a circular economy. The concerts scattered throughout the Italian territory and the initiatives related to the artistic heritage and the discovery of hidden wonders, enhance the peripheral areas by activating local associations and artisans, with a view to proximity tourism. This formula guarantees the local sustainability of the project and its replicability in different territories.
Music with a View was born thanks to the meeting and sharing of the mission and experiences of AMUR Committee with the Creative Cultural Enterprise The Dwellings of the Quartet. The Festival debuted in 2020 with 16 concerts, and was born thanks to the will of the 8 founding bodies of AMUR with the aim of promoting the cultural and social reopening in a particularly complicated period for the country. The 2021 edition has expanded and will be implemented in partnership with Associazione Dimore Storiche Italiane. ADSI will open to the public the extraordinary historic houses scattered throughout Italy, thus enriching the offer of the Festival and the capillarity of the activation of the territories. The cultural heritage of historic houses and young Italian and European professional chamber musicians thus meets the history and tradition of some of the most important chamber music concert bodies in Italy, which flock outside the main cities of the country to make to revive the villages and urban suburbs.
"A widespread itinerary in beauty that makes us understand how culture for our country can be transformed from a cost into a resource if the realities that make it up use all the skills they have to create a system" - declares Francesca Moncada from Paternò, President of AMUR Committee and Founder de The Dwellings of the Quartet -. “It is necessary to make the classical music supply chain sustainable, from hiring artists with a decent fee to an inclusive ticket to reach an increasingly numerous audience”.
"Musica con Vista is a project that fully embraces ADSI's vision: to give space to culture with a view to sustainable tourism and proximity", declared Giovanni da Schio, councilor ofAssociazione Dimore Storiche Italiane. “There are many houses involved in the event, often located in those villages that constitute one of the strategic elements for the restart of the country. Through Musica con Vista we want to offer a multisensory cultural experience, which alongside the enjoyment of concerts performed by professionals is accompanied by the discovery of a private cultural heritage whose beauty embodies and disseminates the best Italian tradition. ADSI, once again, succeeds in the intent of networking to give impetus to those cultural activities that represent the essence of our historical and artistic heritage, favoring the development of a widespread tourism that rediscovers the beauty of small towns in which historic homes often represent the main element of interest. Together with the AMUR Committee and Le Dimore del Quartetto we have therefore established a strong synergy for an offer which, through the widespread network of ADSI historic homes throughout the territory, intends to unite Italy and contribute to the restart of the country ".
