A European project to make the “young plants” that are the new artistic formations grow, like the boys who dedicate themselves to the string quartet: they are in residence in the historic Lombard villas, where we can listen to them. One of the famous authors, Max Richter, is in Rome on the only Italian date; he has written, among many pieces, the soundtracks for films and TV series such as Waltz with Bashir, Lore, Last Days on Mars; or cult series like Leftovers or The brilliant friend. While in Naples we rediscover the great Neapolitan school from the seventeenth century, which has taught the world so much.

From 26 to 2 I am in residence at Villa Vitalba, thanks to the new European MUSA project promoted by Le Dimore del Quartetto. The aim of the project is to support young string quartets in the development of knowledge, skills and entrepreneurial skills that are fundamental for their career, but almost completely absent in their general curriculum: management, communication, production, distribution, physical and mental preparation. ; essential skills to transform passion into a profession.
