Music and Health

Project title

Musica e Salute

Description of initiative

The project Music and Health, promotes an idea of culture and art as elements that harmony to life, and believes that musical art, in particular, has the ability to support and include particularly fragile and disadvantaged categories. Born in 2017, the project is divided into musical communication workshops, dedicated to patients and their families, who participate, expressing their creativity and their potential. They feel recognized and accepted individually and in their community. The workshops represent an opportunity for aggregation and cultural enjoyment accessible and close to individual's needs. The project also aims to support the study, research and constant training of professionals specialized in the use of musical art for therapeutic purposes.
The aim is to develop new methods and methods of study in the field of health and pathology, embracing an increasingly wide social and cultural context; generate empathy by fostering interpersonal relationships in hospital and socio-health contexts; study and application of strategies necessary for the realization of musical laboratories addressed to a wide spectrum of pathologies; a path of experimentation and research, with the aim of defining new methods of collaboration between art and science, starting from the affinities of objectives, survey/work methods and diversity of approach.
