Piano City Milano is the first city-wide festival in Milan. Born in 2011, it has grown for years and has evolved alongside the rebirth and metamorphosis of Milan.
A project for the city that since the beginning has been characterized as a project of and with the city thanks to an innovative working method which involves institutions, artists, associations, network and partners.
A silent revolution which, far from being over, overturns the dynamics: the music does not wait for an audience but reaches out in the squares, in people’s homes in unconventional venues; this diffusion does concentrate the attention on the city centre but peacefully invades the entire urban landscape. Inclusive quality culture not for the few but for everyone to further generate new culture.
Piano City Milano is not only the forerunner for the diffuse festivals that emerged in Milan successively, but also the soundtrack of the city: inspiration and tool of its regeneration.
Piano City Milano is a project by Associazione Piano City Milano with Comune di Milano, curated by Accapiù Srl and Ponderosa Music&Art Srl.
