Our Festival is pleased to present a unique production!

Conceived by Luca Benucci, Artistic Director, this will be one of two major productions of the 17th Italian Brass Week.

Musicians from four continents will perform from the Florence Cathedral Dome and Piazza.

This event is in collaboration with the Opera del Duomo di Firenze.

100 Musicians will perform a World Premiere Requiem for the flood of 1966, composed by Michele Manganelli.

Evocative sounds from the ensemble will be broadcast live from the Cathedral Terrace to the Piazza del Duomo to allow the public to participate in this magnificent performance together with us. 

Maestro Michele Manganelli will direct this wonderful and original event.
