Italian Music Council - CIDIM
CIDIM was founded in 1978 as “Centro Italiano Di Iniziativa Musicale” by 33 concert associations with the object of providing Italian music institutions with the availability of an association which would act as a reference point at a time when extensive changes were being made in the legislation relative to musical activities and which would coordinate complex musical and cultural activities.
The objective of CIDIM was, and is, to:
- contribute to the development of music culture, classical and contemporary, in Italy and abroad;
- encourage and promote the development and diffusion of information, documentation, data collection and research in the field of music;
- promote the circulation in Italy and abroad of young Italian performers and ensembles;support organic and continuative forms of coordination for the production and diffusion of music;
- plan and realize abroad cultural projects initiated by Public and/or Private Bodies, Resident Orchestra Concert Societies, Italian Cultural Institutes abroad and Foreign Embassies accredited in Italy.
