Eight months after the start of the project, the team of “Scena Unita” is being mobilized. This initiative has mobilized many artists to support the entertainment industry.
In November 2020, the “Unity Scene” initiative was formally put forward, with the participation of many Italian artists.The Solidarity Fund started with the artists’ own initiative, and since then, has created aWelfare actions for the most disadvantaged workersWith the support of important partners and 113 brands, a total of 4,780,000 euros has been raised, managed by Cesvi, to ensure transparency and rapid use, giving priority to the most difficult.
“To help this industry, crowdfunding by citizens who have already spent a lot of money is no longer enough,” he began to say Feders“Continuing to ask the people for money is not only ineffective, but also out of keeping with the timesThe initial idea was to ensure that every artist can use the existing relationship with brands, booking agencies and record companies to create a consortium and invest as much money as possible into a common incubator.”

“So we started to understand how to use these funds, and Cesvi has the right payment structure,” Fedez continued. Also announced the establishment of its own foundation to carry out goals and projects In the next few months. “In the first group chat with me, Shade, Achille Lauro, Kolkata, Ermal Meta, and Manuel Agnelli, my colleagues wrote to me personally. Word of mouth has formed a machine, which includes an expert and a crisis A technical and scientific committee composed of people.”
“In the first ten days, we raised 2 million, and over time we reached more than 4 million,” Fedez explained. “I believe the United Scene project could have done more: we could have raised more funds, but what we have achieved is still incredible. Most importantly, it was born out of a spontaneous movement of artists, companies, and workers.” .
Federico’s tone was disappointing, and he also emphasized this feeling through Instagram.But the artist pointed out: “This is a MEA negligence What i do becauseIt may be that I failed to convey the thoughts in my heart. When I said that we could collect 20 million, it was because there were so many artists involved, but cynically, I knew what would affect the collection the most. If even the greatest artist came up with other ideas like many young artists, we might be even more proud of what we do today. I’m not complaining, but we, me first, cannot express the enthusiasm in my head. “

Finally, a word to the authorities. “We are talking about the general situation, but there is a ministry with a minister. I have had a conversation with Franceschini in recent months and I myself have received a message announcing the approval of the welfare decree for the performing arts staff.We should do less publicity and announcements, and do what we say. We need more pragmatism and less publicity”.
Comments by Manuel Agnelli Shade and Michele Bravi About “Unified Scene”
Among the members of’Unity Scene’, there are Manuel Agnelli Who evaluated the project remotely. “It is important not to wait for others to solve the problem and set a concrete exampleThis is a unique thing I have never seen in this environment, and I believe this is the beginning of an important cooperation path in the music and entertainment fields. So, for me, the function of the information related to this initiative is to communicate with public opinion and let people know about a series of workers’ rights, and we are just the front of it.”
Manuel Agnelli commented: “However, all these months of dialogue with the Ministry have not yet led to a change in the system we hope. “We cannot miss this opportunity.”

also shadow He spoke at the conference: “I am very happy that young people also welcome this project. Because they are always the most sensitive to such initiatives, which in some ways are crazy, wonderful and contradictory. We who are usually chased have also chased other artistsI still remember that after the Prime Minister’s decree was issued, I felt sick to think of sharing a whole day with many professionals and friends during our trip. “
“If we can help others from this spontaneous exercise and have a therapeutic effect on us, I am very happy,” Shade concludes. “However, we regret that some situations did not take us as seriously as we hoped. But the call is still in progress, and there are still active projects.”
Close a round of comments in the studio Michelle Bravie: “As an artist and audience, you often hear how much you miss going to a concert.” “We discussed this program from a bureaucratic and administrative perspective, but not only that. There is a complete human and creative dimension. Creativity is the key to passing this moment, And “Scena Unita” provides the possibility of returning to the stage, telling everyone’s creative vision. We put our faces, but there are many other people who need help behind them. Now, we need institutions to recognize the true importance of culture in this country.”
