Flash mob #Giffoni50: thursday 19 march, at 18.30 alongside the Shostakovich Walts n. 2

The notes of Shostakovich's Waltz n. 2 (the theme song of the Festival) bring you to a place that has become the symbol of fantasy and passion. It is impossible for Giffoni not to get carried away by the love for that melody that perfectly embodies the joy and energy of the children and their families. Music that meets the sound of thousands of hands that beat in unison.
The exhortation to relive that same joy - while staying at home, each one from their window and balcony comes from the director Claudio Gubitosi, who wanted to invite the giffoners to participate in a flash mob scheduled for Thursday 19 March, at 6.30pm.
The rules are clear: just start the timeless waltz and create stories by tagging the official account (@giffoni_experience). Those who wish can also send their videos (vertical format) to the address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., attaching the release for the use of the footage.
The best videos will be used for the production of an audiovisual work for television purposes.
