The association of Italian opera-symphonic foundations elects its leaders. Giambrone vice-president: “We will work for a theater that is the heritage of the whole country”. Elected unanimously by the superintendents.

“A role that I take on with the awareness of the great heritage constituted by the opera-symphonic foundations in Italy and of the role that the association must have in terms of valorisation and defense of one of the founding cultural systems of our country. A heritage made of art and music, but also of skills, workers and knowledge.” This was said by the superintendent of the Teatro Massimo in Palermo, Francesco Giambrone, unanimously elected vice-president of Anfols, the association that brings together the Italian opera-symphonic foundations. The superintendent of the Teatro La Fenice in Venice, Cristiano Chiarot, was designated president, again unanimously. They were elected by the Assembly, made up of the superintendents of the Foundations, at the Agis headquarters in Rome. “We will work to enhance the Foundations – says Giambrone – through initiatives that also aim to broaden our audience with the increasingly significant involvement of families, young people and schools. Opera and symphonic music are not the prerogative of an elite, but are an intangible heritage that knows and can speak to everyone.” The mandate given by the Assembly to the new leaders is precisely to proceed with the valorisation of the Italian opera foundations, highlighting their productive capacity and quality and underlining their important role in Italian culture.
