“It is an honor to be able to host an international event such as Arezzo Wave Love Festival 2022 in Cavriglia – the Mayor said Leonardo Degl’Innocenti or Sanni -; when President Valenti sought us out, we immediately responded with great enthusiasm to his request. The fact that he thought of Cavriglia together with his partner Koinè, this means that our Municipality in recent years has distinguished itself for its sensitivity towards culture and for the events of international importance like this that we have organized such as the Monumental Sculpture Symposium and the Motumundi Festival. We are sure that this event will also be a moment of high artistic and social depth and will allow us to alternate with music the historical reflection of the period we are going through ”.

“Arezzo Wave Love Festival for now three generations of people represents a cult, a musical event that has marked the history of independent Italian rock music – said Deputy Mayor Filippo Boni -. Being able to host it in our territory means giving a new, wonderful opportunity to young and old alike to be able to attend high-profile musical performances but also to reflect on current social issues: one above all the war in Ukraine ”.

“I thank the Municipality of Cavriglia for their willingness to accompany us in this new adventure, getting involved and supporting our festival, welcoming us in the structures, supporting us with energy and passion – concludes Mauro Valenti, Director of the Arezzo Wave Love Contest. – Another fundamental partner for the realization of Arezzo Wave 2022 is the social cooperative Koinè of Arezzo, without these two subjects the event would not have taken place and therefore a heartfelt thanks goes to them from all of us. The role of our foundation is to promote non-profit creativity and musical culture and not only of young people, and this is why we consider the presence of two artists such as Alina Pash and Frida Bollani Magoni to be fundamental. During the event we also thought of some training moments, dedicated to young artists, to help them develop their careers through the advice of experts in the sector “.

Admission to the initiatives is at the symbolic cost of 2 euros and the proceeds will be donated to charity to the Calcit section of Cavriglia.
