The City of Music to Host UNESCO

Lucca Teatro del GiglioUNESCO's acronym is in itself the synonym of a dream, which talks of education, science, culture and communication to sustain the future of our world.

One of UNESCO's recent initiatives is to identify a network of "creative cities" – so far these are Bologna, Seville, Glasgow and Ghent – cities whose cultural creativity is essential to their economic development. Last year in Mexico City UNESCO's Executive Council nominated Lucca because of its exceptional musical heritage and architectural beauties.

This month, Lucca, the only Italian candidate for recognition as "creative city of music", will host UNESCO’s international conference, entitled "The universal language of music and art in the development of a global ethic".

Together with tenor Andrea Bocelli, soprano Katia Ricciarelli and ballerina Carli Fracci (Italian ambassador to UNESCO), the city will welcome 250 delegates from the World Federation of UNESCO Clubs. Mayor Alessandro Tambellini presented this initiative at a press conference in Rome, in the presence of Gianni Bonazzi for the Ministero dei Beni Culturali; Maria Luisa Stringa, president of the Italian UNESCO Federation; Patrizia Favati, Lucca's Cultural Councillor; Giorgio Tori, representing the Lucca UNESCO Club; opera singer Katia Ricciarelli; and economist/journalist Alan Friedman. A rich programme of events and meetings will take place in Lucca, and also in Florence.
