Assisi Pax Mundi third edition ends. Four days of Sacred Franciscan Music that, thank to voices and sounds, brought the dialogue to Assisi.
Saint Francisco used to pray singing. His words arrived to us and they are still strong and crystal clear. According to this tradition, the four Franciscan families, with the cooperation of the Saint Francisco Papal Basilica Chapel, promoted the third International Festival of the Sacred Franciscan Music. The object of the event is improving the culture of sacred music, above all that inspired by the figure of Saint Francisco. This edition is included in the context of the Estraordinary Jubilee of Mercy called by Pope Francisco. This grace event will be enriched by the eighth centenary of the “Assisi Pardon”: the indulgence obtained by Saint Francisco in the Little Porziuncola Church.
While the third edition is ending, we are thinking about 2017’s edition at the same time: we are already working on the program for the next year. Father Marcello Fadda revealed the theme: “At the centre of the next edition there will be the dialogue and the communication. Dialogue is above all listening, participation, expression, knowledge and overcoming of the conflicts. Music is the power of the dialogue because it needs to be listened firstly”. In a few time, in Assisi Pax Mundi website there will be all the information to participate to the next edition and live this unique experience.
