Francigena Melody Road 2015

The Via Francigena is much more than a pilgrims’ road: it’s a big project of cultural tourism . In 2015, in fact, Tuscany chooses music as a universal language that binds and unites people and offers a musical itinerary called Melody Francigena Road, the soundtrack of the Via Francigena in Tuscany. The program of events from February 21st to March 31st will include various genres of music: classical, contemporary classical, jazz, opera, theatre song, etc.

The 2015 Festival, sponsored by the Associazione Community News in collaboration with the European Association of the Vie Francigene and with the support of the Tuscany Region will take place in 13 key locations along the Via Francigena, from Pontremoli to Montalcino. The Maestro Roberto Cacciapaglia, one of the best contemporary composers, is the Artistic Director of the Festival and during the events will present new compositions dedicated to the Via Francigena. The artists at Francigena Melody Road will present original programs related to Via Francigena and its themes: the pilgrimage, the road, the encounter, the welcome, the hospitality, the challenge with ourselves. The stages of the tour will be complemented by events that will enhance the territory and will be held in theatres and smaller venues, often cut off from the circuit of the concert.
