For the celebrations of the 700th anniversary of the death of Dante Alighieri, the Italian Society of Contemporary Music (SIMC) turns its cultural and artistic interest to the themes of poetry, nature, and music with a series of initiatives that will take place in various Italian cities and will find a moment of unification in the Autumn Festival Dante scheduled in Milan in the Autumn season 2021.

Interest in Dante's themes will also be addressed to current events and the future of Humanity, Nature and Environmental Sustainability, essential for the livability and future of the Planet, and the need for effective communication aimed at awakening and growing the culture of human rights.

The SIMC organizes the Festival, in collaboration with the Conservatory of Novara, the Conservatory of Milan, and with the adhesion and the patronage of other important cultural institutions. The idea of proposing this Call dedicated to Dante Alighieri aims to remember and update his presence, in the name of contemporary music and composition, according to the precise ideal, ethical and social values.

All compositions must be declared unpublished and not performed.
The compositions must not exceed a duration of 8 '.
For the "TerzoParadiso" orchestral section the duration will be from 10 'to 15'

It is free, without age limits and nationality restrictions.

Registration fee:
€ 40. For each additional score € 20.
For SIMC and Conservatory(or equivalent High-level Music Education) members € 25. For each additional score € 15.
