A RIVER OF MUSIC 2022 | Seventh edition
Also in 2022, the music will return to flow along the Volano River. The seventh edition of A River of Music arrives in Ferrara, with a program filled with great music. From June 23 to September 8, the Molo Wunderkammer, at the back of the Palazzo Savonuzzi in via Darsena, 57, will be transformed into a lively square by the river thanks to music evenings organized by the APS Association of Musicians of Ferrara.
LIVE MUSIC – FOOD & DRINK – FREE ENTRY – SOCIALITY
The common thread in the project will be the weekly appointments on Monday and Thursday evenings in the quay, where there will be the opportunity to listen to live music; different repertoires and different sounds will alternate week after week for a total of 18 concerts with the participation of 65 professional musicians.
From kl. 19:00 you have access to free admission, to sit at the table with the opportunity to have food and drink in the bar managed by the staff at Un Fiume di Musica and new this year, tasty pizzas baked at the time of Albachiara Pizzeria.
As in previous editions, the concerts will be characterized by refined sounds and volume that respect the neighborhood that houses us and its inhabitants; a neighborhood that we have been a part of as a cultural garrison for 10 years, and which has always welcomed us with kindness and participation.
Un Fiume di Musica is a project curated by the Musicians Association of Ferrara – School of Modern Music, in collaboration with the Wunderkammer Consortium (of which AMF is a part) with patronage and contributions from Ferrara Municipality.

The Wunderkammer consortium and the group of associations that are part of it is a center for cultural production, which since 2012 has reinterpreted the concept of the “chamber of wonders” in a modern key to collect and organize the territory’s artistic and productive capacities in a innovative way. Wunderkammer promotes social inclusion and nurtures talents. It is a point of access to welfare services and orientation towards business creation. It is a space for production and work, which brings together the craftsman and the workstation for the young creative, the start-up and the association and coworking. What until yesterday was an abandoned quay has become a city square, a park where you can let your children play and spend an evening in the company of friends and good music. Concrete actions, with culture, music, art, sports and educational paths at the center, with the attention and care of the neighborhood that hosts it, and always tries to give the public a high quality of the proposed events, to become an important point of reference. and citizen amalgamation.
For 7 consecutive years, Un Fiume di Musica has been the backbone of a broad and unanimous path to urban renewal of the dock, conceived and coordinated by APS Low Profile since 2015. A concrete action that has transformed the look of this dock stretch for a long time neglected.
The 2022 edition promises to be even richer and will allow many people of all ages to switch to a place that has always experienced constant change in recent years (also thanks to the focus put in place by this type events), finally experiencing an important historical moment with the rebuilding of the entire dock by Ferrara Municipality thanks to funds from the Peripherie project.
