Even in Italy, the event is organized by numerous organizations under the direction of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities. Cervia once again participates enthusiastically in the initiative, which sees music for a day protagonist throughout the nation, to convey that message of culture, participation, integration and universality that music, in all its languages, is able to communicate. Cervia has joined the Festival of Music promoted by the Ministry and some musicians will arrive in the city thanks to the portal of the ministry, which includes the program of the city of salt.
In case of bad weather the event will be postponed to Tuesday, June 26, with a possible reduced program.
