Hello beautiful people! Are you ready for another wonderful experience to do here in Rome? Well, we are! 🙂
Today it’s pretty about time to talk about music! This is one of our favourite topic and we are pretty sure that it’s the same for you guests, readers, nice people visiting Rome and joining the smiling community of Palladini Hostel Rome.
As you can see from the picture, Rome is going to host one of the biggest events in Italy: the famous and traditional concert known as “Concerto del Primo Maggio”.
The “Concerto del Primo Maggio” is a musical show organized every year to celebrate the Labour Day, the international holiday that commemorates the achievements of the workers. Every year the concert take place in Piazza San Giovanni in Laterano during the 1st of May – as you may understand “Primo Maggio” literally means “First of May” – the stage is easily reachable from Palladini Hostel Rome.
The “Primo Maggio” concert was first organized in 1990 by the 3 majors italian trade unions (CGIL, CISL, UIL) and every year invites the most famous singers in Italy and some international guest stars – during the past years we had been honoured with the participation of artists like Iron Maiden, Lou Reed, Radiohead, Sting, Sinead O’Connor, Blur, Alanis Morissette, Oasis, Robert Plant, Skin, Paolo Nutini, Editors and so many others.
The show is most commonly known as the “Concertone”, since it generally last for a whole day – from 15:00 o’clock to the end of the day. This year is occurring the 29th edition of the “Concertone” and if you are coming to Rome you will have the pleasure to see a lot of interesting artists performing in the stage placed in Piazza San Giovanni.
