Alberto Cesa Prize

XX edition

Alberto Cesa Prize

The Alberto Cesa Prize is conceptualised to highlight music that gives voice to either single or multiple cultural roots from around the world. The organization of the Prize is under the supervision of the festival management, the editorial staff of www.folkbulletin.com and the Associazione Culturale Folkgiornale.


Now in its 18th edition, the Prize occupies a prominent place amongst national music contests, thanks to the originality of its formula. It has also drawn the attention of RAI Radio 1, which chose to support and sponsor the event, and of Nuovo Imaie, which gave a generous donation to the Prize for the organization of a tour.



REGISTRATIONS CLOSED. THE FINALISTS OF THE TERRITORIAL SELECTIONS WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON

La manifestazione

The event was established in 2004 to pay homage to Alberto Cesa (voice and hurdy-gurdy of the avant-garde folk group Cantovivo), a great Piedmontese artist and a great friend of Folkest. In over forty years, Alberto Cesa has made it clear that singing in a minor language or dialect is not to be on the margins, but to increase expressive potential.
