NATIONAL ACADEMY of SAINT CECILIA - Rome, 2014

Antea Brugnoni promoted and managed a project aiming to spread a top-quality musical offering to the MENASA region. This included concert tours, workshops, summer schools and the exhibition of the Academy's unique collection of musical instruments.

The National Academy of St Cecilia is one of the oldest musical institutions in the world and the oldest in Italy, founded by the papal bull 'Ratione congruit', issued by Sixtus V in 1585. A number of very prominent musicians and artists performed, composed for or were members of the Academy through the centuries, such as: Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, Arcangelo Corelli, Alessandro and Domenico Scarlatti, Niccolò Jommelli, Cherubini, Mercadante, Donizetti, Rossini, Paganini, Auber, Liszt, Mendelssohn, Berlioz, Gounod, Meyerbeer, Luciano Berio, Sergei Rachmaninoff and Cecilia Bartoli.
