“Art speaks more languages than man could ever imagine”
We are much more than an ordinary organizer of competitions in choreography, vocals, music, theater, visual arts or other forms of art.
A non-profit cultural association of Italian origin organizes events for all artists of all skill levels and ages, inspired by the concept of the word “art” as a universal language that connects cultures and peoples.
Implemented projects put the participant in the forefront, provide an opportunity for personal growth and the opportunity to show their own qualities in front of a specialized panel of judges, which includes world-class Maestro, specially selected for each art form.
Performances on professional stages in front of a large audience.
The event programs are enriched with master classes, performances of general numbers, lectures, where participants can learn new trends in various arts directly from world-class teachers and stars.
The format of the events provides for the competitive part, which has a qualification, rather than a competitive evaluation system, where all participants will be able to perform and receive an adequate assessment of their creativity based on the age category of each participant.
Each participant receives an international diploma at the Gala Concert of the event, where the most talented or brightest participants, selected by the artistic director of the festival, perform. At the awards ceremony, participants are given gift certificates with the opportunity to participate free of charge in other events organized by the Festival&Contest or to study free of charge with famous Maestro abroad and at home.

Prizes and certificates given to participants serve as a stimulus for personal growth, they invite you to replenish your own cultural baggage through trips to events in other countries.

Over the years of its activity, the association has received support and patronage from the Ministries and the State. structures hosting events. Among them are the Ministries of Culture and Education of Russia, Kazakhstan, San Marino, Spain and Italy, where the Festival&Contest is recognized and accredited in the “official plan of the arts under the Ming. education in Italy” (Piano delle Arti del MIUR) in 2020.


Any level of professional artists, amateurs, students or children, of any age and any background, any form of art from folk traditions to modern styles can apply to participate in any of the events organized by the Festival&Contest.
