The 25th anniversary edition of the charity concert features a line-up including Patti Smith and a host of international and Italian stars.
Funds raised will support two charities: the Fondazione Pontificia Scholas Occurrentes, which works to counteract social network bullying, and the Fondazione Don Bosco Nel Mondo, which aims to free children enslaved in the coltan mines of the Congo.
