Risorgimarche: music and solidarity in the places of the earthquake

“A shaking of the surface of the Earth, resulting from the sudden release of energy in the Earth’s lithosphere that creates seismic waves. It can range in size from those that are so weak that they cannot be felt to those violent enough to toss people around and destroy whole cities. The seismic activity of an area refers to the frequency, type and size of shaking experienced over a period of time.”

This is the definition of the word “earthquake”.
This is what happened to my land.
There are towns and villages that, once I’m back to Italy, I will not be able to see anymore since the do not exist any longer.
There are friends who live in a house that does not belong to them, because they were forced to leave their own home.
There are children who must learn too early that tragedies in life really exist, not just on TV.
There are old people who will never see the places where they were born and lived for a lifetime ever again.
There are broken dreams.
There are non-existent hopes.

And then there is “Risorgimarche”.
It is not a novelty that the Italian actor Neri Marcorè, who is originally from Le Marche region, still has a strong connection with his region.

Recently, he has been the face of some commercials in support of Le Marche (check out the hilarious video below)  and now, we are happy to tell you about his project in support of this land battered by the earthquake.

Risorgimarche is an invitation to come to Le Marche and to discover a still little-known land through a series of musical concerts.
Some Italian artists like Luca Barbarossa, Fiorella Mannoia, Malika Ayane, Daniele Silvestri…and many many others, will perform in different locations tin Le Marche and make people discover our enchanting region.
Every event will start around 5pm. This timetable is designed to protect the environment, exploiting the natural light and thus preserving the places that will host these concerts.

Solidarity is important, but it is even more important to give people the opportunity to resume their lives and to continue with their own strength.
Here’s the goal of Risorgimarche: to let tourists fall in love with the natural beauty of Le Marche region.
It is through the revival of the tourist flow that is the recovery.
So, thanks to all the artists that will volunteer to this project and wil offer moments of leisure for a good cause. They will attract visitors from outside of the region and let them admire the beauties of which it is rich.

    • Kerry,
      It’s definitely very hard, especially right after these terrible events happen and leave many people in pain and despair.
      It takes time and a lot of strength to recover from fear. But then, the love for your land gives you the power to struggle and to start your life again. The sense of community and support from other people in and outside the country helps a lot.
      Thanks for your heartfelt thoughts! I wish you well.
