On the importance of music in situations like the one we are currently experiencing on a global level, Matteo Conti affirms that “it is a work of union, which is what music is. Music is social glue. This is a struggle that we will have to carry out whether we want to believe that we are akin to musicians or not. And that music (us) can change the world”.
Throughout the interview, Matteo Conti asserts the role that music has in society, its importance in education, as well as its transformative power in people’s lives and society.
