It is also approaching for 2023 the May Day Concert in Rome. Hosted as usual on the stage of Piazza San Giovanni in Laterano, the largest free live music event in Europe beats time this year to the rhythm of “Italy is a democratic republic founded on work”. The slogan chosen by CGIL, CISL and UIL pays tribute to the Italian Constitution, on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of its entry into force. From 3pm to midnight, the concert event organized by iCompany, directed by Fabrizio Guttuso, will make Italy move to the rhythm of music on the occasion of Labor Day.

An edition, the 33rd since the event took off in 1990, even more focused on work, recognized as first fundamental principle of the Italian Republic, individual right and social duty to be guaranteed. And if Rome hosts the musical event as always, the trade unions have chosen Potenza to be the backdrop for the national demonstration of CGIL, CISL and UIL during which the three trade unionists, Maurizio Landini, Luigi Sbarra and PierPaolo Bombardieri, will speak on work , rights and the Constitution. Next to Rome, Power becomes the city symbol of the difficult situation in Southern Italy and of the new season of rebirth and growth.

Attention to work, but also to the new generations with the concept Generation #1M2023 around which the artistic line of the Roman concert develops. An event increasingly attentive to transgenerational communication that music must have in order to reach all audiences, more or less young.
