Italian Cultural Events:
Music in unexpected places

Italian Flag bar

For all you cultural music lovers out there, you will find this topic very interesting! We are going to talk about a series of unique musical events that are becoming more frequent and more popular in Italy: They are concerts high up in the mountains known as “concerti in quota” (concerts at heights) and “concerti all’alba” (sunrise concerts).

The “concerti in quota” take place during the heavenly summer months in Piedmont and in the Dolomites of Trentino Alto Adige at heights of up to 3000 meters. The “concerti all'alba”, on the other hand, take place in Trieste at the end of an ancient pier that leads almost into the middle of the gulf, in a place surrounded by the sound of the waves and the wind.

What type of music will you hear at these events? What kind of talented musicians perform? Find all this out and more in this latest podcast episode of Italy Made Easy Podcast.
