“We also export Made in Italy”
The activity of the CIDIM (Italian National Music Committee) aimed at promoting talented Italian musicians abroad continues also in 2024. “We have been involved for years in the ‘Italian Sound’ project which, thanks to the support of the Ministry of Culture – General Directorate of Entertainment and the collaboration of many Italian Cultural Institutes abroad, allows us every year to bring the best Italian artists outside the borders , offering them the opportunity to perform on high-level stages”, explains the Vice President of CIDIM and President of AIAM (Italian Association of Musical Activities) Francescantonio Pollice.
This is the list of the next six concerts: in Madrid, Spain, on Sunday 21 January, there will be a recital by the well-known pianist Benedetto Lupo, considered by international critics to be one of the most interesting and complete talents of his generation. The event is held in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute of Madrid within the Ciclo de música Círculo de cámara organized by the Círculo de Bellas Artes de Madrid, Casa Europa. Concerts by the duo Delilah Gutman, vocals – Refael Negri, violin, will take place in Germany in Hamburg (Wednesday 24 January) and in Cologne the following day.

Last appointments on Friday 23 and Saturday 24 February in Lebanon in Bierut and Tripoli where the pianist Giuseppe Andaloro will perform, one of the most brilliant performers that our country has.
“We are working hard – concludes Pollice – with all our members to identify the best artists here in Italy, choosing between who to debut in the new year and who to propose again because they have demonstrated competence and skill. This year, also thanks to grants from the Ministry of Culture and the support of some important private institutions, we intend to increase the overall number of concerts abroad even more than the previous year, to promote Made in Italy in the music sector too “.
