ASSOMUSICA AND MINISTER FOR YOUTH POLICIES SIGN MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING

ASSOMUSICA AND MINISTER FOR YOUTH POLICIES
SIGN MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING
 
VINCENZO SPERA
“A major achievement in the activities carried out by the Association for best practices concerning the youth who take part in our events”  


Rome, Italy, 19th July 2022. Assomusica – the Italian Association of Live Music Show Organisers and Producers – has always been committed to numerous initiatives aimed not only at enhancing the creativity of young artists, but also at prevention and awareness-raising. The Association has promoted and signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Minister for Youth Policies, Presidency of the Council of Ministers, Department for Anti-Drug Policies.  


The Memorandum is the result of a collaboration between the Minister for Youth Policies with responsibility for Anti-Drug Policies, Hon. Fabiana Dadone, and the President of Assomusica, Vincenzo Spera, the signatories of the document. 


“Music has always been at the core of social innovation processes and right now, when at last social life has resumed and people, including many young people, are attending live concerts and shows, I believe it is of the utmost importance to convey important social messages to foster greater awareness of the risks related to forms of addiction, both in terms of drugs and of behavioural nature. Therefore, I really wanted to promote a programme-based collaboration between the Department for Anti-Drug Policies and Assomusica. Its aim is to spread prevention and awareness-raising initiatives by addressing above all younger generations, as they, more than anyone else, are the most vulnerable category and on which we must instead invest, also in terms of greater engagement”
Minister Dadone stated.


“The signing of this Memorandum of Understanding – President Spera stated – marks a major achievement in the activities carried out by Assomusica for the best practices concerning the millions of youth who take part in our events. This collaboration with the Minister for Youth Policies and the Department has shed a light on the socio-cultural and economic value of our sector; in fact, our work has always been aimed at fostering emotions, social life and above all at facilitating contact between artists and audiences. Today marks the beginning of another challenge aimed at raising awareness, especially among the youth, of the risks related to the use of drugs, which are harmful not only to one’s health but also to one’s soul”.
