During the summer in Assisi, they take place the events of Assisi Music Festival, an international festival of music, art and culture. The project MUSA aims, through music, to foster intercultural dialogue in order to create exchange, mediation and tolerance.
Assisi, the city of St. Francis, is a worldwide symbol of peace, dialogue and acceptance; it is therefore the best place to propose a festival dedicated to the exchange of culture between peoples.
