The Vitala Festival brings together and hosts artists from different walks of life and diverse nationalities with the purpose of entertaining the community, supporting the arts and fostering artistic synergies and cultural integration. Over the years, the Festival has hosted over 200 artists, with monthly performances and events programmed. Vitala Festival has also collaborated on dedicated, special events to fundraise for charities.

As a philanthropic project, the Vitala Festival is made possible by the kind attendance of the public and the generosity of individual donors and supporters, particularly with the increased difficulties and challenges brought about by the Pandemic. The proceeds from the tickets go to defray production costs and to support the artists involved in the Festival.

Special thanks go to all the artists and performers, to Teatro San Genesio, Teatro Le Salette, Parco Torretta de Massimi, to the Festival’s technical team and collaborators, to the kind donors and of course to the audience.

The programs of past seasons are available on Teatro San Genesio website or the Festival’s Facebook Page.

On Tuesday 21 November at 9:00pm, the Vitala Festival – philanthropic events in support of Music and Art – proudly presents an extraordinary concert and event of the new season. Celtic folk duo ‘Fuaràn‘ (Scottish singer Emma Gordon and multi-instrumentalist Bernardo Nardini on guitar, whistle and mandola) return with their concert, “SHORE SONGS” : A musical journey from the traditional tunes played in the seaside pubs of Galway, to the ‘storytelling’ of folk songs from the Scottish isles, all interspersed with the Duo’s own original music, inspired by and dedicated to the people and the experiences shared in these enchanting places. Accompanying Fuaràn will be some very special guests: ‘Bowreed’, an esteemed Irish and Scottish folk duo, featuring British musician Fred Holden on fiddle and button accordion and Francesca Romana Fabris on guitar and vocals. Also joining them on stage will be Matteo Maggi from the indie folk group ‘Bend The Barb’ (fiddle, mandolin) and double bass player Alessandro Accardi
