The concert is part of the “Farulli 100” project

“Ahead of its time, you have understood how important the musical education is, under a social point of view, too. You have been able to pass down your knowledge to all the musicians that have been at your school.” – Claudio Abbado

The National Committee for the Centenary Celebrations of the birth of Piero Farulli, chaired by Gianni Letta, brings together some of the most illustrious musical institutions in Italy, as well as institutions and bodies of excellence in the Tuscan territory. The “Farulli 100” project was born with the help of some of the countless and excellent students of Piero Farulli to remember – on the occasion of the hundred years since his birth – the disruptive cultural message of a man who for years has worked for free within the institutions, convinced of the ability of the great music to inspire humanity, helping to create a more supportive and harmonious society, fighting his whole life for it to be actively taught and practiced at school from an early childhood.
