The open-air concert of the Slovenian trio Širom, one of the most interesting and acclaimed bands of the moment, is the first event of the DEI SUONI I PASSI project.

The intertwining of diverse musical approaches and tools, histories of sounds and unbridled musical imagination and craftmanship is the expansive guiding principle of this group.
More than a dozen instruments can be found in the repertoire of Iztok Koren, Samo Kutin and Ana Kravanja and at least as many given musical forms that can be perceived as an inspiration behind the character of this ensemble. However, in their practice as well as experiencing they remain anchored in their creative process to an extent that allows them to avoid merely reflecting existing patterns. What this generates in an original, stylistically homogeneous form of expression that oscillates between a wide array of folk sounds and contemporary acoustic rock-style meditations.
The end result is grounded yet still mystical minimalism.
Širom’s music is contemplative, but can get harder when necessary, it is closer to being band- than chamber-like, to being street as opposed to urban in nature.


DEI SUONI I PASSI, a project that was born in 2018 from an idea of Fondazione Fabbrica Europa and Associazione Musica e Nuvole, is focused on the relationship between music and the environment and aims to tell, discover and connect the territories from Florence up to the Tuscan Apennines, passing through the Via degli Dei.
The 2023 edition is organized with the support of Regione Toscana, Città Metropolitana di Firenze and Unione dei Comuni del Mugello.
The concert of Širom is under the patronage of the Municipality of Firenzuola.
