"Music is a universal language. Pace, peace, paix, paz, pau, shalom, salam, mir… all melt in a unique pentagram, in sounds understandable by all the peoples, fostering attitudes of otherness and brotherhood."

The UNESCO Concert for Peace organized by UNESCO in collaboration with the Municipality of Venice and the Government of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia will bring together in the legendary Theatre “La Fenice” in Venice UNESCO Artists for Peace and musicians, representing 4 different religions, 12 countries and cultures. All artists have generously responded to UNESCO-BRESCE’s appeal to perform together to demonstrate, as beautifully worded by the writer Marek Halter, that "music knows no barriers" and "has the potential to rise above destruction to build a bridge for mutual understanding and lasting peace". Claudia Cardinale, UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador will be the master of ceremony of this event.

In sustaining UNESCO’s constitutional mission, “…since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defences of peace must be constructed”, UNESCO-BRESCE is promoting this benefit concert to support activities and projects related to inter-cultural and inter-religious dialogue and to the process of peace building in the South East European region.

The City of Venice historically known over the centuries as the crossroad of various cultures and religions and in particular, the Theatre La Fenice, enveloped in its mythical/fabled legend, renews UNESCO’s appeal for sustaining and promoting intercultural dialogue and respect. Music has the potential to rise above destruction to build a bridge for mutual understanding and lasting peace.
