The project 'JAZZ & More sound flavors solidarity' was born in 2011 from an idea by Silvano Dalla Valentina, tourism and event professional, with the collaboration of Fabrizio Gaudino, jazz trumpeter form Caserta resident in Trento. Born out of passion but also to remember a promising young trumpeter Verona, named Armando, who left us a few years ago after meeting at mid-life mental illness.
From these roots the intent to create opportunities and synergies to make good Jazz music, carefully "Joung Talents", to "Make Together" and "Solidarity".
The first initiative was created at GRAN CAN RistHotel and Community Valpolicella (VR), in collaboration with the care and inclusion project for people with mental health problems led them from the Cooperative Azalea. Since then the project has gradually expanded by finding partnerships and synergies with other organizations.
THE FESTIVAL IN VERONA
The most important project in the city is "DINNER with JAZZ MUSICIANS" (2011), conducted in collaboration with the historical Verona Jazz Club and set at the prestigious Due Torri Hotel *****. The festival enjoys the patronage of the Municipality of Verona and ideally covers 9 months from October to June with monthly events.
THE FESTIVAL ON LAKE GARDA
The other project on which we are particularly involved is "O LIVE JAZZ Fest" (2016), set in the wonderful sixteenth Court Torcolo in Cavaion, on Lake Garda. A fantastic renovated rural court, which houses the Municipal Library, the Civic Hall, the Oil Dop Garda Consortium, the beautiful Enoteca Torcolo and an outdoor theater with 700 seats in front of the stage !! All 3 km away from Bardolino, on Lake Garda.
It's almost more than a Festival for us. It is a big party, where you meet young talents from the Mediterranean to the North Sea, good Wine and special Food, and the most important Cooperatives and Associations, both as exhibitors and as a job opportunity for people with mental disabilities.
We wait for you in Verona
Thanks and Good Music
