What does promoting a greater understanding of music mean to Intesa Sanpaolo? Above all it means providing concrete support for programmes and seasons that stand out for their exceptional repertoires and artists. It means designing and coordinating music education and training projects which are recognised by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research: we have been holding musical seminars in eight Italian cities, from Turin to Palermo, since 2013, involving some 5,000 lower and upper secondary school teachers. Our aim is to foster new interdisciplinary approaches which integrate music appreciation with other school subjects. This means helping to set up youth choirs and orchestras in disadvantaged areas of our cities. It also means working alongside leading, well-established musical organisations and orchestras to create training pathways for chamber musicians and helping promote works by up-and-coming composers in Italy and beyond.
