Focus "Open Rehearsals" - Filarmonica della Scala
Through decades of support to the Open Rehearsals Project, UniCredit Foundation confirms its commitment in the social field, offering a significant contribution to deserving non-profit organisations, making great music an important inclusion tool.
The Open Rehearsals, thanks to the availability of the musicians and the directors of the Filarmonica della Scala, allow a large audience the opportunity to enjoy , at convenient prices, a form of musical culture otherwise difficult to access, providing an opportunity for many to attend the preview setup of a great concert and access the Teatro alla Scala with reduced-cost tickets.
The entire proceeds from the sale of tickets are donated to four non-profit organisations that vary for each edition based on the chosen target audience.
This important result is possible thanks to the collaboration between the Filarmonica della Scala, the Municipality of Milan, the main partner UniCredit and the support of the UniCredit Foundation, which identifies the target area of intervention for each season and covers all organisational costs.
For the three-year period from 2019-2021, in accordance with the guidelines for children, the Foundation Council shared with the other promoters to allocate the funds, raised through the Open Rehearsals for the 2019/2020 season, to organisations committed to offering hospitality to all those who accompany and assist children and
young patients hospitalised in Milanese health facilities. This choice is linked to the attention already adopted by the Foundation to support other hospitality and hospital care projects for children and young people together with their families.
The commitment to children through the Open Rehearsals also completes a wide and articulated series of initiatives carried out, with increasing commitment, by the UniCredit Foundation in this area and confirms the Foundation's proximity to the territories and its reference communities, an extremely effective public-private synergy model aimed at supporting non-profit organisations and spreading culture.
