Intesa Sanpaolo is Sponsor of MITO SettembreMusica, the international music festival that since 2007 has united the cities of Milano and Torino with a rich array of musical events. The festival’s 10th anniversary, under the artistic direction of Nicola Campogrande, will take place in both cities from the 2nd to the 22nd September 2016.
For three weeks in the month of September MITO SettembreMusica offers three or more events per day, featuring the participation of world-class artists and orchestras. They are supported by the leading musical institutions of the two host cities in the creation of one immense virtual stage stretching from Milano to Torino and the surrounding areas.
The festival will be showcasing exclusively classical music – the program spans some 800 years of music. And for the first time the program is based on a theme: “Fathers and Sons”.
Each performance is a thematic adventure. Audiences are provided with themes and short explanations, which serve as listening guides. And to top it all off: MITO OPEN SINGING, an extraordinary jamboree of song in Milano’s Piazza del Duomo and Torino’s Piazza Castello, in which the audience is invited to sing along with a thousand choir members who’ll be elbow-to-elbow with the public.
