Esercito Concertante is an 'army' of musicians from different countries and cultures: the same countries that fought in World War I in 1916-1917. Artists from these countries come together today a century later, speaking the universal language of music in order to transform the guns and the pain to friendship and to be a messenger of memory and peace.
