Earth Day Italia
Since 2007, Earth Day Italia works to promote the formation of a new and strong environmental awareness in Italy. Pierluigi Sassi, Earth Day Italia’s President, has chosen Music as the main instrument to bring the message of respect for the environment and sustainability to the general public. That’s why Earth Day Italia organizes concerts in the most important Italian squares, hosting national and international artistic testimonial like Vinicio Capossela, Ben Harper, Pino Daniele, Peter Gabriel, Patti Smith, Anggun and Carmen Consoli .
In just five years of presence in Italy, Earth Day has become an important and a significant tool to increase awareness on environmental issues. It manages to do it by combining traditional and innovative communication tools.
