A commitment to increasing people's appreciation of music
UniCredit has always supported music, with a particular focus on its classical forms, because we believe it is vital to the social and economic development of our communities.
Through numerous partnerships with leading international orchestras, we produce projects that bring music to a new and broader public, supporting events that blend classical forms with more recent musical idioms.
We also develop and sponsor projects for musical education and in support of young musicians.
Music is an ancient art form, with the power to unite different cultures. Naturally, as an international group, we prioritize support for this essential mode of artistic expression.
