Cinema amore mio. National preview for the New Year’s Day Concert at Il Ciocco

New Year’s Day Concert at Il Ciocco is a tribute to the most beloved songs that have contributed to immortalize the international cinema masterpieces (Monday January 1st, 2018; for information +39 348 6559783,


Starting at 5:30pm, a national preview entitled “Cinema amore mio – Le più belle colonne sonore della nostra vita” (Cinema amore mio – The most beautiful soundtracks of our lives) is scheduled on the stage of the Auditorium Theatre. A journey through those stories of the big screen that, years later, continue to make people dream (from “Once Upon a Time in America” to “The Postman”, from “Rocky” to “Flashdance”, just to name a few of the titles remembered through music). A tribute to composers the likes of Charlie Chaplin, Burt Bacharach and Ennio Morricone.

But above all, a show rich in suggestive sensations and emotions brought to the stage by the New Tuscany Orchestra, an ensemble of twenty-five musicians comprised of promising students and graduates from Tuscan conservatories, the solo guitar of Maestro Giandomenico Anellino, who also supervised all the orchestra arrangements, and the piano notes of Luca Perroni.


In the cast, also the singers Benedetta Bianchi and Massimo Bertacci, first violin Sofia Astarita and the actor Alessandro Bertolucci, here in the role of director and narrating voice. And lots of surprises are in store, too, starting with Roberto Magnanensi’s accordion.


At the center of this evening, as always, the value of solidarity: the proceeds from the concert will go to the Muhura Mission in Rwanda, where Dr. Lido Stefani together with his wife Anna, currently president of Onlus Amatafrica, has been working for 18 years.


Organized by the Misericordia of Castelvecchio Pascoli with the contribution of Kedrion Biopharma, the Renaissance Tuscany and Il Ciocco S.p.A., this 19th edition of the event sees the participation of Del Monte Ristorazione Collettiva, Idrotherm 2000 and Italiana Servizi as sponsors.


Like last year, it will be possible to choose your seating in the hall upon purchase of the tickets, which are already available on-line at, at Il Ciocco infoPoint and all the Vivaticket circuit sales points.
