“The Quartet and its soul: Piero Farulli has left a dense and important legacy. Le Dimore del Quartetto gather it and see it reborn and multiplied in hundreds and thousands of streams. Thanks Piero.”
– Francesca Moncada, founder and sole director of Le Dimore del Quartetto
The “Farulli 100” project was born with the help of some of the countless and excellent students of Piero Farulli to remember – on the occasion of the hundred years since his birth – the disruptive cultural message of a man who for years has worked for free within the institutions, convinced of the ability of the great music to inspire humanity, helping to create a more supportive and harmonious society, fighting his whole life for it to be actively taught and practiced at school from an early childhood.
The National Committee for the Centenary Celebrations of the birth of Piero Farulli, chaired by Gianni Letta, brings together some of the most illustrious musical institutions in Italy (Accademia Musicale Chigiana, Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Associazione Amici della Musica di Firenze, Le Dimore del Quartetto S.r.l. Impresa Sociale, Conservatorio Luigi Cherubini, Fondazione Orchestra Regionale Toscana, Fondazione Scuola di Musica di Fiesole, Società del Quartetto di Milano, Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino e Associazione Piero Farulli ONLUS), as well as institutions and bodies of excellence in the Tuscan territory (Comune di Fiesole, Fondazione CR Firenze, LENS Laboratorio Europeo di Spettroscopia Non Lineare, Scuola Normale Superiore).
Within this project, Le Dimore del Quartetto dedicates with gratitude to Piero Farulli all the concerts in Tuscany of year 2020 and 2021.
