It is a unique and creative means of communication in our society and generates profound feelings of respect and acceptance among people. Our Project – Salut CULTURA! – gets you involved in the promotion of culture and education, in order to provide for the cultural needs of the entire society. This cultural project spans throughout the entire European area and confirms the idea that music brings people, cultures and ideals together, beyond any conventional borders”.
