“A way to enhance and animate the city districts, which adds to the other initiatives, moved by the same purpose, undertaken up to now, also promoting the musical activity that the bands play in the territories: in some small and medium-sized centers cities, in fact, are the only means for the diffusion of music.” continues the commissioner.

Musica per le Periferie is part of the “Cultura Bene Comune 9 2023” project, an initiative resulting from the collaboration between the Culture and Tourism Sector and the Social Policies Sector, Neighborhoods and Commons Center of the Municipality of Cremona, which arises from the need to expand the places and ways in which to create culture in the city, decentralizing the proposals and/or placing them in new and alternative contexts, spaces and areas of the territory that are not normally considered possible places in which to propose cultural activities, or even the usual spaces of which propose new uses, also aimed at developing cultural welfare, as an integrated model for promoting the well-being and health of people and communities, through inclusive practices based on the visual and performing arts and on cultural heritage.

In particular, the review of the band bodies, which has obtained patronage and subsidy, falls within the culture common good as a heritage of relationships in the neighborhoods. The current context identifies an extremely proactive city full of initiatives, this offer is often concentrated in a few spaces, highlighting a great abundance of events in places considered “usual venues” for entertainment, which is contrasted by a progressive rarefaction of the proposals in other areas of the city. This theme intends to multiply the opportunities for meeting and strengthen the fabric of the community, enhancing all the neighborhoods and thus favoring new urban geographies.
