May 1st big Concert in Rome, the event will be held but in different ways than in other years. The restrictive anti-contagion measures imposed by the lockdown will not allow the event to take place in Piazza San Giovanni in Laterano in the capital as it has been for the last 30 years.
Quarantine and social distancing do not allow gatherings and therefore no audience in the square to attend the concert. In fact, each edition was followed by thousands of people who, from the morning, stayed in front of San Giovanni in Laterano to listen to the music of the many artists on stage.
