From Jazz and Blues to Soul, R&B, Rock, Gospel and Pop, get ready for the seventh edition of Vitala Festival right here in Rome. For those who aren’t aware of the Vitala Festival, it’s a self-funded philanthropic festival promoting live music and visual arts, organized in collaboration with Teatro San Genesio in Rome’s Prati area.

With an average of 20 events per season, there’s a lot in store for music lovers.  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. The proceeds from the tickets go to defray production costs. Special thanks go to all the artists and performers, to Teatro San Genesio, to the Festival’s technical team and collaborators, to the kind donors and of course to the audience.
