Ospedaletti resident Carina Gors is a longtime supporter of SOLI and the organizer of the concert. She
explains, “The first time I visited the ruined church in Bai ardo, the energy of the setting was
unmistak able — it’s been spiritually and strategically significant for thousands of years. When I learne d
that SOLI was coming to Italy, I immediately thought how magical it would be to experience their
musical artistry in a place of living h istory and magnificent scenery . It’s been my pleasure to work with
communit y leaders in Baiardo to bring this idea to fruition and I hope music lovers from across the
Riviera will extend a warm welcome to SOLI . ”
