One of Italy’s oldest pop groups
Evergreen favourites I Nomadi will play a gig on Milan’s Cathedral Square on Saturday 4 October to celebrate 30 years of the Exodus Foundation, an NGO dedicated to recovering and caring for young victims of drug dependancy, AIDS, social exclusion and jail.
Starting at 21.00, the group will play accompanied by the Italian Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Bruno Santori. Special guests at Saturday’s gig will include Italian idols Francrsco Renga, Nek, Luca Carboni and Annalisa, who will perform rearranged Nomadi successes as well as their own compositions.
I Nomadi is one of the longest active groups on the Italian pop scene, founded in 1963 and still popular with some 90 concerts every year for an average of a million spectators.
Exodus founder Don Antonio Mazzi says that their music is one of the main channels of communication with his patients because it can create a sense of belonging and help them find their feet in new life projects.
There will be a dedicated area for disabled fans near the stage. On the group website are details for organising bus trips from other sities to bring fans to Milan for the concert, which will be broadcast live on RTL 102.5, starting with warm-up numbers from 19.00.
