In collaboration with ERSAF Regione Lombardia, under the patronage of Consorzio Tutela Vini Oltrepò Pavese and the Municipality of Torrazza Coste (PV). The event is realized thanks to the collaboration of volunteers from AGAL and the Pro Loco of Torrazza Coste (PV). A Tour of Blues for AGAL stems from the successful experiment of the April 2023 Roots Music Festival in Varzi – Vartweek. A festival at the origins of music and blues that draws artists and fans for entertainment that touches all the senses.

The Festival is enriched with values because the music starting with the next stop in Riccagioia, Torrazza Coste, will be charitable. All proceeds from the Festival will go to AGAL, a vital association that has been hosting and assisting children and their families engaged in the fight against childhood leukemia and cancer for 40 years, in collaboration with San Matteo in Pavia. The Roots Music Festival conceived by Mauro Ferrarese becomes itinerant and will also be offered on other Italian squares. It becomes a Blues Tour for AGAL, Saturday, June 1, 2024, beginning at 6 p.m., enthusiastically hosted by the Riccagioia Estate in Torrazza Coste, where ERSAF, Ente Regionale per i Servizi all’Agricoltura e alle Foreste, an instrumental entity of the Regione Lombardia, is headquartered, entrusted with carrying out technical and promotional activities for the development and innovation of the agricultural and forestry sectors and for the rural territory, an estate managed today by the Riccagioia Foundation.
