"The country is restarting, it is time to rebuild and reconstruct, huddling with those who have always fought to protect the weakest."These are the words of Enrico Ruggeri. "As president of the Italian National Singers' Association, I have always seen the Red Cross as an example of love and dedication for others super partes, without ideological conditioning. As a musician, I am happy to participate in the event, which, on Saturday 8 May, will help support one of the projects of which I am proud. Life is the art of encounter, it has been said: the concert will be an opportunity for surprising artistic crossings and human contacts that we have not always seen or heard. Thank you for involving me". "I invite you to donate money to this initiative in favour of the Red Cross, in which I participate aware of the role and power of sound and speech. After eight years, I am officially returning to convey my innermost feelings through Music. Music alone is a non-verbal code, it is pure emotional intention"he concludes. Franco Mussida.
