In the heart of the enchanting Italian town of Filago (BG), a thrilling phenomenon annually takes place at the crossroads of music, solidarity, and unwavering passion. It’s a sonic convergence that has grown to become a veritable institution among metal enthusiasts and humanitarians alike. It’s of course the Metal for Emergency Festival, an event that not only ignites the stage with electrifying performances but also kindles the flame of compassion, channelling its energy towards those in dire need. The photo galleries are by Dario De Marco, who was filling in for Silvio occupied elsewhere. Thank you for saving the day, and a huge thank you to the organization of the festival for hosting us!

Benedetta Baldin

Hi! My name is Benedetta, I’m 29 and I live in Northern Italy. My passion has always been music: I started taking guitar lessons when I was 6. Now I work as a sales representative, but in my free time I interview talented people, I spread the word about my favorite band (MoonSun), and I go to concerts or travel around Europe. I am a huge collector of anything Tolkien-related, autographs, merchandise, and CDs. I am quite an original person and don’t mind being the voice outside of the choir (even though I play in the church’s choir!).
