Exactly one year has passed since the catastrophic floods that struck Romagna between the 2nd and 17th of May, wreaking havoc in the vast Po Valley: after heavy rains, numerous rivers and streams burst their banks, submerging the patchwork of towns and villages, while the fragile Apennine hillsides were devastated by landslides and mudslides. Exactly one year after all this, Romagna in fiore is here. Eight shows, eight extraordinary concerts, held in some of the worst affected towns, to pay tribute to the spirit of resilience that characterises this land, and to the tenacity of its people, who have struggled and are still struggling to recover and start again. Many great artists have accepted to contribute to this solidarity project: a true “festival within the festival”, supportive, inclusive and environmentally friendly.
This event will provide an excellent opportunity for meeting and discussion: thousands of visitors from all over Italy are expected to attend and spend a few leisurely days together, immersed in the beauty of nature, enjoying music and poetry, warmly welcomed by the people of Romagna. Together, they will celebrate the beauty of a land that risks neglect, and enjoy the unfailing hospitality that has always characterised this area, even in critical times. Together, they will work towards a fresh start, in a gesture of sincere solidarity. With untiring confidence, we are already seeing this new beginning taking shape, despite the challenges and the mud.

Dario Faini, also known as Dardust, is one of the few who can embody clichés while simultaneously rejecting them. A highly sought-after producer and the authentic King Midas of contemporary Italian pop music, he has signed hits for a range of artists including Elodie, Elisa, Mahmood, Alessandra Amoroso, Thegiornalisti, Lazza, and even Angelina Mango’s La noia. Yet, he has often renounced the most exploitable aspects of his art to propose a live mix of electronics, visual effects, and melodic piano playing. In this purely acoustic setting, he now chooses to perform in a place that has become a haven of peace amidst the creases of history. Stripped of all effects, his concert will allow us to test with bare ears and heart the original true spirit of the music that informs our present.
