As part of this year’s edition of Ravenna Festival, on 7th July Pala de André hosts THE ROADS OF FRIENDSHIP, with the conductor Riccardo Muti, one of the most famous masters of Italy and the world.
So many years have passed since the first adventurous journey that marked the beginning of the Paths of Friendship project: it was 1997, the sound of bombs still in our ears, the rubble in our eyes, when music was called from the smouldering ruins of Sarajevo to offer new hope for the future.
Since then, the Ravenna Festival has never stopped building bridges of brotherhood to heal the wounds of hatred and terror, of incomprehension and mistrust, but also to find our roots in the ancient stones and in the eyes of others.
And once again, from the ancient Byzantine capital washed by the waters, Riccardo Muti’s baton will lead Italian and Jordanian musicians, united in a plea for peace and brotherhood through the universal language of sound.
