High Patronage of the European Parliament

With particular satisfaction, the Ensemble Serenissima Association announces that the symphonic concert of the orchestra of the XXIII FVG Music Meeting, in which there will also be the award ceremony for the "IV International Composition Prize SEM 2019" received the high patronage of the European Parliament. On 11 April, President Antonio Tajani sent a personal letter to the headquarters of the Association with which he approved the High Patronage of the European Parliament. This patronage is granted every year to a limited number of quality events that are not for profit and have a clear European dimension.

Through this concession, the European Parliament adheres to the event as an institutional partner, providing its moral support (not material).


"I would like to underline - we read in the letter from President Antonio Tajani - how much we appreciate your initiative, which promotes the spread of contemporary music and at the same time strengthens the visibility of cultural heritage sites. Your event is aimed at a mixed and heterogeneous public, stimulates curiosity, encourages the participation of young people and promotes pluralism and civic awareness, highlighting solidarity as a value. All this is worthy of praise and of great interest."

"The events - continues Tajani - and the music festivals contribute significantly to intercultural dialogue, bringing together people of different generations and nationalities, and your international musical meeting is a further demonstration of how this is true."

"Europe – we continue to read - is at the forefront of cultural and creative industries. Here beauty, style and design meet technology and industrial know-how in a continuous search for excellence."

"It is therefore with great pleasure - concludes the President - that I agree to your initiative the high patronage of the European Parliament. I take this opportunity to wish you every success in what will be an excellent Musical Meeting."


The declaration by the President of the European Union rewards the work done over the years and repays us for the great commitment that lies behind the organization of the FVG International Music Meeting. It is the demonstration that it is an important event of undoubted value and cultural interest in Italy and in Europe.


We thank President Tajani for the acknowledgment granted and for the words of appreciation addressed to the event.


Now we just have to continue to work hard to continue with professionalism in the articulated and varied path of initiatives thanks to which we have achieved the important result.

We continue to believe that only by working with passion and tenacity will it be possible to achieve important goals.
