Aquila on the frontline for the Covid-19 emergency: from strings to 3D wires for ventilators components

Twenty-five kilograms of 3d wire for ventilators in Monza, seventy-five in Bergamo, forty-two in Rome.

All this happened in just a few days, without yet fully understanding the importance of what is happening, but driven by a crazy, powerful energy pouring out of his heart, knowing he can help his country.

This is the story of Mimmo Peruffo, manufacturer of guitar strings in Caldogno, Italy (the town of Roberto Baggio), who found himself to be the only one in Italy to produce the wire needed by 3D printers to make valves for diving masks converted into ventilators.

Aquila ukulele festival 2020!

DUE TO THE COVID-19 EMERGENCY THE FESTIVAL IS POSTPONED!
STAY UPDATED IN OUR SOCIAL CHANNELS AND WEBSITE!

Dear musicians from all over the world,

we are pleased to present Aquila Ukulele Festival 2020 edition!!

Since 12 years we have been organizing concerts and workshops dedicated to this small Hawaiian four-stringed instrument: the ukulele.

The history of the ukulele is full of adventures... a musical instrument that, if it had the gift of speech, would tell how that time from Portugal arrived to the island of Madeira and how in the 20s it became one of the most played instruments.

This year the festival will be in Arborea, an opportunity to discover the beauty of this Art Nouveau small town just a few steps from the crystal clear waters of the Sardinian sea. It will be dedicated to the golden age, a real jump into the past.

Two days of concerts, workshops and exhibition of musical instruments. Soon you will find all the information about the artists, how to get there and where to stay.

We are waiting for you!
