FIM – 2018 Music Fair will be held in Milan from May 31st until June 3rd 2018 in MILAN: Piazza Città di Lombardia, with free admission.
But what does FIM mean? What is it concretely?
The acronym defines the International Music Fair, collecting all the paradigms, nuances, history, protagonists and intentions of this Muse and it does so by promoting everything that concerns it: the tools, to create and reproduce it, the ways to share it , in concerts and not only, presenting those who write it, play it, teach it and also those who listen to it, and, obviously, those who sell it. FIM promotes music with all its professional, cultural and educational intentions throughout Italy. Responding to the analysis of a cultural field that seems to have stopped, FIM wants to give a boost, a new energy and the confidence to revitalize this art that has marked the history and tradition of our country. And so it will also do it for its future.
Here you will meet musicians, producers, record labels, manufacturers of musical instruments, artisans, violin makers, small businessmen, record dealers, musical instruments and music teachers with the aim of involving institutions, conservatories, schools, producers and distributors of musical instruments, collecting societies, music associations and cooperatives and record companies. These are the objectives of the FIM: to produce an innovative and unique project to give value to music. To promote growth in the music world by creating a workshop dedicated to it. To stimulate collaboration between artists and beyond. To foster technology in its field through its evolution. To stimulate the study of this discipline to free creativity in everybody. To put this wealth on the web, but, of course, protecting it.

Now for some details. This sixth edition will be held in the largest covered square in Europe: Piazza Città di Lombardia, in the center of the new Palazzo della Regione Lombardia. The event will be organized by Maia together with Big Box and with the collaboration of the Milan Conservatory, the Sforzesco Castle Museum, the Teatro alla Scala, the Physics Department of the Milan Polytechnic, the Laboratory of Music Informatics at the University of Milan and many others. The doors will be open to students, teachers, professional people and enthusiasts through workshops aimed at the students themselves, in-depth seminars, meetings and interviews with musicians, performances by young talents and exhibition of services and products. These events, in a synergistic way, will realize what is the central theme of this edition: the formation of the musicians of tomorrow.
