Riparte Como Contemporary Festival 2022

The Como Contemporary Festival 2022 reopens its doors!

This third edition, opened with a marvelous concert in February at the Teatro Sociale in Como, had a long pause before entering its liveliest moment when its events will make contemporary music co-habit and dialogue with the other arts. 
A series of concerts are ready to make us dive into the contemporary sounds, atmospheres, artistic manufacts, which, working all together as a unique art, will make us feel deeply and know a lot of new music!
