Modena cathedral comes to life for a special concert
Wednesday 12 April 2023
On 20 April Filarmonica della Scala musicians will be performing a free concert inside Modena’s Cathedral to celebrate the renovation of the museum complex. The venue brings with it a new light, making it even more beautiful thanks to UniCredit’s sponsorship contribution. Another testament to the bank’s commitment to enhancing the treasures of our cultural heritage.
The Cathedral Museums, located within the respect area of the Unesco Site of Modena, are very important because they are closely related to the history of the Cathedral.
They are divided into two collections consisting of sculptural fragments belonging to the cathedral and buildings from previous eras, as well as works and furnishings testifying to the vitality of the Modenese Church over the centuries.
To celebrate the completion of the enlargement of the exhibition venue, UniCredit, in collaboration with the Municipality of Modena, the Metropolitan Basilica and the Modena Foundation, is organising a free concert featuring musicians from Filarmonica della Scala. The new spaces and pre-existing collections, now rearranged and expanded, will open to the public with accompanied and guided tours on Saturdays in April and May (29 April, 6 May, 13 May, 20 May and 27 May) and every day starting from June.
Save the date on 20 April, at 7 p.m., Modena Cathedral.
