The Roads of Friendship, Athens

Concert within the Athens and Epidaurus Festival and the Ravenna Festival

Part of the programme "Tempo Forte Italia- Ελλάδα 2019", an initiative of the Embassy of Italy in Athens, aimed at bringing "more Italy to Greece and more Greece to Italy."

The annual musical pilgrimage, curated by Ravenna Festival since 1997, has taken the internationally acclaimed conductor Riccardo Muti and an ensemble of Italian musicians to historic cities of the past and the present, where they have performed together with local musicians. After concerts in cities as diverse as Sarajevo, Beirut, Jerusalem, Cairo and Tehran, the Roads of Friendship have chosen Athens as its next destination, a city connected to Ravenna by the Mediterranean Sea and by the common Byzantine ties.
Under Muti’s baton, Italian and Greek musicians and choristers will interpret in common Beethoven’s ever-popular Symphony No. 9.
