Music For Uncertain Times 2022

Today’s Italian music in a duet with international pop in a three-stage journey recounted in the language of film and produced by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

 

After last year’s success, Music for Uncertain Times returns from 21 June 2022 with three new “episodes” establishing a dialogue between the beauty of Italian cultural heritage and new expressions of musical creativity. A journey through Italy that ponders the uncertainty of our times, seeking answers in the universal and spontaneous language of music and art.

Music For Uncertain Times is a story that unfolds in stages, produced by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

Three cities and three unique locations hosting three duets by Italian and international artists who recount the beauty of today’s Italy. The programme for 2022 features Colapesce and Dimartino with Ana Mena in the art nouveau interiors of the Kursaal Theatre in Bari, Samuel and Jeremiah Fraites of The Lumineers in the Le Roi dance hall in Turin, and Gaia, with Lous and the Yakuza, in the Villa Aldrovandi–Mazzacorati Theatre in Bologna.

Three new productions in today’s musical language disseminated worldwide through “italiana”, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation’s portal dedicated to promoting Italian culture, and through the global network of Italian Cultural Institutes.

Italian music is adding rich new content to the story of our country’s culture as told internationally, thanks to the success of our rap, rock, pop and electronica artists. Music for Uncertain Times provides a snapshot of today’s music industry and its people, while paving the way for contacts and relationships between international artists and increasing the global visibility of Italian music. Music for Uncertain Times has an important and rightful place, therefore, in the activities performed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation to promote contemporary Italian culture.

MUSIC FOR UNCERTAIN TIMES is a project by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation to promote Italian culture worldwide through music and creativity. It was conceived by Andrea Lai and directed by Francesco Coppola.
