2nd Voices for Peace
Singing for peace
Italy, the beautiful country in the south of Europe inspires ensembles from all over the world to go on very special concert tours. In addition to its long musical tradition, its fascinating architecture and its unsurpassed gastronomy, there are this remarkable vitality and joy of living that make this country a perfect place for the realization of unforgettable musical projects.
Along the lines of St. Francis, namely that "the Lord may give you peace", we are pleased to welcome choirs from all over the world to Assisi and Perugia.
Assisi is a truly magical place that draws its particular character from the reminiscence of Saint Francis, the charming countryside that surrounds the town, and the important witnesses of its thousand-year-old culture. With its two-story basilica, Assisi is one of those rare places that can enable the mind of man to fly high.
Perugia, founded in the 6th century by the Etruscans, is the largest city in Umbria and with its fascinating Piazza Grande one of the most beautiful cities in Italy.

Assisi is a small Umbrian town in central Italy, located 19 kilometres east of Perugia at an elevation of 400 meters. Assisi is best known as the birthplace of St. Francis of Assisi — patron saint of Italy, founder of the Franciscan order, and one of the most popular Catholic saints in history. Assisi's main attraction is the 13th-century Basilica di San Francesco, which contains the sacred relics of Francis and beautiful frescoes of his life. The town of Assisi, with its Roman ruins, winding medieval streets and sacred shrines, has been a major Catholic pilgrimage destination for centuries and is today one of the most popular tourist destinations in Italy. Although Assisi has only about 3,000 inhabitants (26,000 in the larger comune of Assisi), 4 to 5 million visitors throng the small town each year.
Perugia, capital of the region of Umbria and archdiocese, is located on a hill from which one can overlook the Tiber valley. With its grand and medieval appearance the city is famous for its comprehensive collection of the works of Perugino. The historic city centre features many churches and buildings of highest art historical value and interest. The old town mainly consists of a centre which dates back to the times of the Etruscans and a well preserved city wall. Perugia is the domicile of oldest summer university for foreign students. The so called "Università per stranieri" was founded in 1925 and focuses on communicating Italian art and making it well-known and widespread abroad.
We congratulate all singers to their great results! All in all 7 golden and 6 silver diplomas were awarded. Many thanks to all choirs and ensembles for participating!
