The Filarmonica Ettore Pozzoli concludes the fifth edition of the renowned music season “I Grandi Concerti” with two unmissable events: “Aperitivi in Musica 2023” held at Villa Longoni in Desio.
The “Aperitivi in Musica” project offers an innovative and engaging cultural experience that aims to:
Each event features a one-hour concert, introduced by a brief presentation to guide the listening experience, followed by a meeting with the artists and event protagonists, where an aperitivo will be served.
Prior to each concert, the audience has the opportunity to immerse themselves in the history and beauty of Villa Longoni through a QR CODE-guided visit.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to thea Fondazione della Comunità di Monza e Brianza for their valuable contribution to the project, to the Municipality of Desio for their patronage, and to Villa Longoni for their splendid hospitality. Without their support, it would have been impossible to realize these cultural experiences that allow us to discover and appreciate the beauty of our territory.
Villa Longoni is a historic 20th-century residence built by the Longoni family next to the eponymous hosiery factory founded in 1921 by Giuseppe Longoni. It is an elegant villa that houses ancient chandeliers, gilded mirrors, and ceilings adorned with decorative stucco. Since 2020, the Brianza Community Consortium has reopened the villa to the public: today, it serves as a social and educational project dedicated to young people and a co-working space for professionals in the artisanal and creative sectors. It also serves as a venue for cultural initiatives and events!
QR CODE TOUR
The Villa hosts the permanent exhibition “CASA E BOTTEGA,” featuring vintage photographs of the Longoni family, prints, and historical documents related to the hosiery factory. By following the exhibition path and listening to recorded audio, visitors can embark on a journey through the productive history of the “Calzificio Elgi” and discover the stories of the individuals who inhabited the residence.
