But, why Milan?
Milan is in the meantime a nerve centre and a leading city in the show business, especially for what concerns music in Italy. Lombardy is indeed the ‘queen region’ for music, hosting in its territory over 20,1% of industries in the sector in the whole Italy: only in 2016 the region hosted 142,000 shows and live performances, featuring 6-million entrances and over 8-million participants resulting in a total income of around 200-million euros. Though the city of Milan is the very centre hub for music in Lombardy with an average offer of 300 events per month, resulting in a monthly 8-million income and events involving 928 companies (around the 9,3% of the national total number) – a number which is increasingly growing – and over 7,000 professionals working in the sector. These are important numbers that not only testify the importance of Milan as the booster for the city’s vitality, but also the volume of the income and of the ability to offer working possibilities in the music sector in the country.
The value and importance of the cultural offer in the music sector is currently supported by the Municipality of Milan, the mind behind the project of the first edition of Milan Music Week, a key event which add up to the yet uber rich programme of events in the city.
