( from festival's site ) - Finally Rome opens its eyes over one of the most promising realities in Europe: the ukulele! And it does it with a weekend punctuated by live performances of Italian and international artists, afternoon workshops for the study of the instrument and booths in front of the stage committed to other activities, with the involvement of luthiers, craftsmen, manufacturers and associations of musicians. What better time to better understand the spread and potential of the little Hawaiian instrument!
