The performance will take place at an empty Duomo di Milano in Milan, Italy, and can be seen around the world via live-stream.


. History teaches us that after this is over will come a spring brighter than any we remember. Then we will have an unmissable opportunity to start fresh with a new system of values. Will will smile, then - soon - about this upset, we will remember and we will tell our children and grandchildren all about the time when the world warned us, stopped us, before it was too late. . Let's seize this extraordinary chance with courage, responsibility and trust. Because as Queen Raina of Jordan said: "Our world desperately needs a new Renaissance that will push humanity to give their all when the stakes are high. To act, not to hesitate. To face up to things, not to back away. To create and celebrate beauty, not just for beauty's sake, but for the good of our world." . . La storia ci insegna: dopo, sarà una primavera di quelle che non ricordavamo così luminose. Dopo, sarà l’imperdibile occasione per ripartire con una rinnovata gerarchia di valori. Dopo (tra poco), sorrideremo di tutto questo sgomento e ricorderemo e racconteremo ai nostri figli e nipoti, l’avventura di quando il mondo ci ha avvisato, di quando ci ha fermato, prima che fosse tardi. . Con fiducia, responsabilità e coraggio, raccogliamo questa straordinaria occasione. Perché, come ci ha ricordato Rania di Giordania: “Il nostro mondo ha disperatamente bisogno di un nuovo Rinascimento, che spinga l'umanità a dare il meglio proprio quando la posta in gioco è più alta. Agire, non esitare. Venirsi incontro, non tirarsi indietro. Creare e celebrare la bellezza, non solo per se stessa ma per il bene dell'umanità”. . Andrea

Bocelli said on social media …

"On the day in which we celebrate the trust in a life that triumphs, I'm honored and happy to answer 'Sì' to the invitation of the City and the Duomo of Milan. I believe in the strength of praying together; I believe in the Christian Easter, a universal symbol of rebirth that everyone — whether they are believers or not — truly needs right now."

The special event is called Music for Hope. It begins on Sunday at 7 p.m. Central Europe time, which is 1 p.m. ET, or 10 a.m. PST.
