the PIF promotes the aggregation of multiple fields and multiple international origins and as such cannot avoid stimulating the development and improvement of the “accordion” instrument. With this in mind, this year # PIF2020 will promote the edition of a book entitled “ACCORDION: THE COLORS THAT WILL COME”
Under the supervision of the PIF artistic director Renzo Ruggieri, we asked everyone to try their hand at this adventure, collecting their impressions, documenting the critical issues and, above all, offering their experiences with a view to “dreaming”, because the dream – even when it seems impossible – it always shows new paths and new perspectives to follow.
These are the articles on the work.
