L'Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio

Founded in Rome in 2002, the Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio comprises 18 musicians from 10 countries who speak nine different languages. They perform throughout the world and promote the exploration and integration of diverse musical repertoires often unknown to the general public, as a way to also help other foreign musicians who often live at the margins of society. It is the first and only orchestra to have been formed through the self-taxation of various citizens, and has procured jobs and legal documents for musicians of various nationalities living in Italy. In 2006, Agostino Ferrente captured the genesis of the Orchestra and its message of brotherhood and peace in his documentary L’Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio. Currently, the Orchestra is on tour with the shows Around the World in 80 Minutes and The Magic Flute. Its latest album is called L’Isola di legno (2013).
