Milan stands out for its overflowing rhythm typical of a great European metropolis. It is a city with many hands and many hearts, the crucial centre of change, the cultural capital that never looses sight of its vocational goals of integration and openness. The challenge for Piano City Milano is to closely mimic the city that hosts it, to keep up with its tempo and to reinvent itself with new ideas and projects. Just like Milan itself, Piano City Milano aims to be a festival open to everyone, participative, engaging and an opportunity for all to meet and share a unique experience.
This seventh edition stands out because of its music contents, the projects and original approach. It has only one tradition: change. Once more, this year the collaboration with our many cultural and institutional partners, alongside companies and associations active in the area, has allowed us to invade the whole city with music. This year we have really overdone ourselves: for the first time our pianists go beyond the city limits, holding concerts across the province and the region, going beyond geographical boundaries and yet remaining central to the spirit of the festival.
