On June 21, 1982, an initiative by the French Ministry of Culture brought amateur and professional musicians out on the streets, courtyards, gardens, squares, stations, and museums in all of France. Even since then the Fête de la Musique has become a true social phenomenon and has been celebrated in Europe and in the rest of the world. Since 2002, thanks to the efforts of the Italian Association for the Promotion of the Fête de la Musique (AIPFM), over 120 Italian cities have taken part in the festival, creating a network that extends over the whole country. Every year, on June 21, a number of live concerts take place in every city, most of which are performed in the open air and feature musicians representing all backgrounds and genres.Free concerts, the importance of musical activity, spontaneity, availability, curiosity, all kinds of music – all of this belongs to the festival. Both amateur and professional musicians are free to express themselves, because the festival of music belongs especially to those who make it.Many of the concerts taking place in Fano have been coordinated by the association Fano Music Story.
