The European Foundation for Support of Culture presents the Italian festival of classical music “In Musica”, which was held in Rome from 9th till 16th of July 2018.
Rome is a unique historical place where throughout the centuries all types of world art have encountered each other and mixed together, thus creating a unique cultural atmosphere. Beauty, history, culture, art, charm, mystery, discovery… and delicious food – it is impossible to find one word to describe the capital of Italy.
