Music will be in the air to inaugurate the dances of the Estate Sforzesca summer festival: the first concert greets the arrival of summer in Milan to the rhythm of swing.
June 21st marks the first day of summer and also the European Music Festival Day, so the Castello will resonate with black swing music. The opening concert - L'età d'oro dello swing (The golden age of Swing) - will be a tribute to the great masters such as Benny Goodman, Ella Fitzgerald, Cole Porter and Charles Trenet.

The evening will then continue with Milano and Popular Music - Di Tempo in Tempo, a musical journey through ‘yesteryear, today and tomorrow’, a tribute to ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s pop with a nod to the future. Book your ticket here.
