Rome’s Vitala Festival kicks off its 7th edition
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.
From September to June, artists from different walks 0f life and diverse nationalities come together with the purpose of entertaining the community, supporting the arts and fostering cultural integration. Over the years, the Festival has hosted over 150 artists, with monthly performances and events programmed.
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.
All performances take place at Teatro San Genesio, located in via Podgora 1 (near Viale Mazzini). The programs of past and current seasons are available on the theatre’s website or the Festival’s Facebook Page.
Save the date on Monday 25 March at 21.00: the Vitala Festival will proudly host a refined and unique concert by Simona Di Pietro & Band, Awakening, for the first time in the Festival’s program. The project stems from a selection of original songs which Simona Di Pietro, singer and songwriter wrote over the years and which she recently decided to collect and rearrange, together with her band, in a more modern key. From this music journey comes Simona’s first CD: Awakening, released in March 2018.
It’s definitely a concert not to miss! Tickets (15€, reduced 13€) include first drink at foyer bar. From 20.00 an optional BUFFET with refreshments will be available.
