Have you ever stepped inside Milan Duomo or its Museum after closing time, experiencing a unique and exclusive occasion to discover the secrets of the Cathedral, on the notes of great composers such as Bach, Schubert and Ravel? From today, all this is possible.
The Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo is offering a new event made up of music, art and history to share together: Trails of Notes in Duomo. Visiting the Milanese Museum and Cathedral is now intertwined with sound paths, thus giving life to three unmissable events on 24 June, and 8 and 24 July 2020 for a maximum of 50 members of the public.
Each event, lasting around 90 minutes, will be characterised by an insightful cultural moment and finishing with a concert, all thanks to the excellence of Maestro Danilo Rossi, Principal Violist of the Teatro alla Scala Orchestra, Maestra Luisa Prandina, Principal Harpist of the Teatro alla Scala Orchestra, and Maestro Stefano Bezziccheri, piano teacher at the Conservatorio “G.B. Martini” in Bologna, who have made their art completely free to contribute to the “15,800 Notes for the Duomo” fundraising campaign, supporting the regeneration of the Cathedrals’ Organ.
