Dedicated to all University of Padua students, the grand concert held on Tuesday, October 4 welcomes some of the most popular Italian musical artists, singer-songwriters and bands beloved, including, Pinguini tattici nucleari, Madame, rovere, fantahouse, cmqmartina and YTAM.
The participation of these contemporary artists fits perfectly into the mosaic of celebrations for the 800th anniversary, which also welcomes international scientific conferences, Nobel Laureate lectures, art exhibitions, and initiatives that tell the story of the University’s history.
The welcome concert takes place at 7pm at Parco della Musica where you will have the chance to experience top Italian artists live. The concert headliners are Indie pop sextet Pinguini Tattici Nucleari, whose latest success was this summer’s #1 hit Giovani Wannabe, and rapper and singer-songwriter Madame, a multi-platinum record performer who has become a symbol of gender-fluidity.
Before the grand finale, rovere takes the audience on a journey from dalla terra a marte. Followed by fanthouse, whose moves and energy have brought the group success from Gen Z as a response to their viral release of Siamo ragazzu on Tik Tok and Spotify, cmqmartina, who transports the audience into her musical world of pop and electric fusion.
A performance by singer-songwriter YTAM, who brings his musical inspiration from the cinema and pop culture as an original mix of sound and nostalgic soul, closes the event.
Event is reserved for the University of Padua student community.
The event is SOLD OUT.
The University is dedicated to supporting the international student community, especially students arriving from countries in crisis. As such, the University will allocate proceeds from the concert to grant scholarships to students from Myanmar as they continue to endure harsh forms of repression imposed by its military junta after the February 1, 2021 coup d’état, which has thrown the country on the brink of civil war. The deteriorating situation has prevented many promising Burmese students from continuing their studies, which prevents them from building the foundation needed for a prosperous personal and professional future.
