Novara – Monday, December 1st, the Representative of Novara and Verbania, the Knight Andrea Padulazzi gave to the school “Contessa Tornielli Bellini”, high school insitute that gives hospitality to needy students of Novara’s district, a range of musical instruments to develop the project “El sistema” born in Venezuela and promoted in Italy by the unforgettable Maestro Claudio Abbado.
The Institute school in fact about a year ago wanted to join the project “El sistema”, but only thanks to the generosity of the novaresi Knights this project finally realized.
“El sistema” is an ambitious and visionary project, which was born in 1975 from the creativity and determination of the musician Jose Antonio Abreu. It’s been over 30 years since Abreu gathered the first 11 children from the streets of one of the poorest neighborhoods of Caracas, and gave them an instrument to let them play together in a garage. Today, “El sistema” is a program of free music education, it is a network known around the world and it is a model of social evolution.
The Master Abbado showed in Italy a project inspiring to “El sistema” which apires to rescue the youngest from disadvantaged conditions and social marginality through the teaching of music and the opportunity to place them in youth orchestras. The music has to become “the red thread through the labyrinth of the suburbs.”
