“I first met them by chance. A friend of mine was seated next to them during a lunch and, while chatting, she mentioned a project I was working on. It was about an orchestra founded in the city center of Palermo for juvenile social rehabilitation. They immediately asked to get in touch with me because they wanted to know more.

Every time Giancarla and Luciano spotted a chance to invest in a brave project bringing together music and young people, they would combine forces to guarantee a bright future and good results to it.”
