this year’s theme of Sacred Music Festival of Cortona that is held every year since 2004 and it’s organized by the Cortona Cristiana Association following an ideal of fusion between art, music, culture and religious faith. The goal of the association is to promote and spread the artistic and musical Christian culture in an environment where culture has always blended with faith. No location can be better than Cortona: the Tuscan city boasts the Laudario Cortonese, which presents in particular forty-six laude music, still presented during the various editions of the Festival.

Through various concerts that will be distributed in Cortona, the purpose of the Sacred Music Festival is to rediscover the spirituality lost, through religious melodies. Anyone can actively participate in liturgical singing courses: a way to feel like a leading event in Cortona.

Among the different locations in Cortona that hosted the artistic events during the editions, we find: the evocative Eremo delle Celle, the Church of San Domenico, the Church of San Francesco up to the Duomo. With the participation of prestigious artists and famous art scholars such as Vittorio Sgarbi.

Other local institutions also participate in the organization of the Sacred Music Festival: the Diocese of Arezzo, the Accademia degli Arditi and the Etruscan Academy.
