“Musica sulle Apuane” is a festival that aims to contribute to the spread of sustainable and knowledgeable practices in tourism in the interest of protecting such a beautiful and fragile place as the Apuan Alps. From 2013 until today, the festival has attracted some 10,000 people from all over Italy creating an attentive and participatory public. The project aims to lend relevance to environmental themes, combining hiking itineraries with music.
