Assisi, a particular city for its vocation to meet and promote peace and respect, continues to promote and spread a culture of dialogue that truly welcomes everyone and offers everyone the values of the common good, behind the example and the stimulus of St. Francis and St. Clare.
The review “Assisi Pax Mundi”, organized by the Franciscan Families of Assisi with the collaboration of the Musical Chapel of the Papal Basilica of St. Francis and now in its sixth edition, intends to offer a possibility of dialogue for communion and peace. The artists participating in it are indeed invited not only to present their own repertoire, but also to meet others in the wonderful setting of the city of the Poverello and to share experiences and feelings that enrich each other.
The event will take place from 22 to 25 October 2020, with concerts that will take place at different times of the day in the Franciscan places of Assisi and its surroundings; the culmination of the event will be the final concert which will see the participation of all the registered groups. The event will end with a solemn Eucharistic Celebration in the Upper Basilica of St. Francis and the execution of the Canticle of the Creatures by Fr. Domenico Stella, with the participation of all the choirs and instrumental groups.
