Anima Mundi is back for the twenty-second time to fill the Cathedral and Camposanto of Pisa with great music. Seven concerts, as per tradition, from 9 to 28 September, alternating great masterpieces of sacred inspiration, combining the Catholic and Protestant traditions in the spirit of ecumenism that is more current than ever today, with special moments of the instrumental and vocal repertoire.
