The festival was created by violinist Uto Ughi with the aim of taking classical music out of its ivory tower to young listeners. The 12 concerts that make up the programme feature many young musicians and are free of charge for its young audience. They take place in auditoriums and churches in Rome and the surrounding areas. Tickets can be picked up at Messaggerie Musicali in Via del Corso 472 from 15.00 to 18.00.
