The local community and social issues have always been of paramount importance to Faenza Group and supporting a wide range of national and international cultural events is very much part of its DNA. All art forms are very closely linked, from the creation and printing of a fashion magazine, coffee table or photography book to cultural events such as concerts, readings, exhibitions and film festivals. This link is called the “pursuit of perfection” and can be found in the design, creation and execution of events, products and productions. This “pursuit of perfection” is one of the guiding principles of the Faenza Group philosophy. Bearing this in mind, it is easy to see how close an art book is to music and culture and this is why this year Faenza Group has decided to support a great international event: “Time in Jazz”.
The main themes of Time in Jazz 2019 are art, literature, cinema, environment and society. In its thirty-second year, the festival will be held from 7 to 16 August in Berchidda (Sassari), the hometown of its founder and artistic director, trumpet player Paolo Fresu, and other towns in the north of Sardinia.
This year’s festival is particularly rich and varied, with a busy programme of musical events which will be held non-stop from morning to night in different spaces and venues: the large arena in the main square of Berchidda, Piazza del Popolo, will host the evening concerts from 11 to 15 August, together with some of the most typical locations in other towns along the festival route. A wide variety of different events have been planned besides the music: book presentations and the latest releases, initiatives to promote and raise environmental awareness, workshops and shows for children, the usual festival of documentary films organised by the director Gianfranco Cabiddu, and lots more besides. To view the packed programme of events, concerts, presentations and evenings, just visit the official website of the event: https://timeinjazz.it/timeinjazz2019/
Given the enormous cultural and social importance of the event, Faenza Group, together with many other national and international partners, has decided to support Time in Jazz directly and promote the positive values it embodies and which have always driven the Faenza-based group.
