Castello Sforzesco


About the event

The playbill of ‘Milano è Viva’, the new entertainment season in the Cortile delle Armi of the Castello Sforzesco, will come alive this year with 58 live shows, from 12 July to 10 September.
Pop music, electronic music, jazz, classical music, musicals, theatre, dance, and children’s shows are brought together in a single calendar with names of great prestige and appeal such as Patti Smith, Elisa (who will perform on the final evening of 10 September), Fiorella Mannoia, Roberto Bolle, Noemi, Samuele Bersani, Nada, Sergio Caputo, Dixon, Le Cannibale, and others.
The opening is on 12 July with the songs of Davide van De Sfroos, followed on the 13th by Kokoroko with a refined concert anticipating the next edition of JazzMI. But throughout the two months of programming, music travels between past and present, with the many tributes to protagonists such as Lucio Battisti, Milva, Franco Battiato, the Beatles, and genres such as operetta and musicals, passing through Italian songwriting and electronic music.
Several appointments are dedicated to classical music, with concerts by the Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano and the Società dei Concerti, as well as the ‘Magic night‘ dedicated to Chopin.

Other performances

Comedy is ensured by Enrico Bertolino and Luca Bottura’s instant theatre and by The Pozzolis Family (with Alice Mangione and Gianmarco Pozzoli), while theatre is “interpreted” by Lella Costa with her show “Stanca di guerra” (Tired of War), by Stefano Massini‘s “Storie”, recent winner of five Tony Awards with his show “The Lehman Trilogy”, by Gioele Dix and his show “Ai nostri tempi (biblici)” (In Our – Biblical – Times), and by Andrea Pennacchi’s “Una piccola Odissea” (A Little Odyssey).
The programme also includes dance, which will inhabit the Castello Sforzesco stage with open rehearsals and the final show of OnDance 2022, a celebration of all dances in a show of great performances and performers.
