Assisi is an extraordinary city for its sensation of peacefulness and respect, and it continues to promote and spread a culture based on the dialogue that truly welcomes everyone and proposes the values of the common good, following examples and incentive of St Francis and St Catherine.
Assisi Pax Mundi festival has been organized by Assisi’s Franciscan families with the cooperation of the Saint Francis Papal Basilica Chapel Choir, and now in its sixth edition intends to give the possibility to dialogue for the peace and for the Communion. Participating groups, in fact, have to present their repertoire and to meet each other in the wonderful setting of the city of the Poverello, to share their experiences and feelings in order to enrich themselves.
This event will take place from 22 to 25 October 2020, with a serie of concerts that will occur at different moments of the day, into Assisi Franciscan locations and their surrounding. The top moment of the festival will be the final concert during which every attendant group will participate.
Finally, the event will finish with a Solemn Mess in the Saint Francis Upper Basilica and with the performance of the “Creatures song” by father Domenico Stella, with the participation of all the choirs and instrumental groups.
