Ortigia Sound System is an Electronic Music Festival that mixes the rhythms of Mediterranean tradition with the new trends of contemporary music. Following the success of the latest edition, which has brought the Festival to national attention, Ortigia Sound System wants to widen the national and international media spots on this precious city through a dense program of music and artistic performances spread across different areas of the island.

Ortigia Sound System 2021

"Ritornerai" is the concept manifesto of Ortigia Sound System 2021. Taking inspiration from Bruno Lauzi's famous track, reinterpreted by the maestro Franco Battiato, "Ritornerai" expresses a wish to return, both physically and mentally, to our human dimension, made of relationships and emotions. A return to a new normality, more aware and inclusive, capable of growing thanks to empathy.

For these reasons we need to remember that, since we are human, we need to live the experience that music itself gifts us: if the pandemic has spoiled and deteriorated the fragilities in this sector, we will start again from the collectively shared passion for culture. One step at a time, we will return.
