Mixed orchestra changing concepts about immigrants in Italy

The Orchestra di Piazza Vittoro is an orchestra based out of Rome, made up mostly of immigrants. The orchestra’s founder, Mario Tronco, states that The orchestra was conceived as a challenge to the government… I was interested in these people, and then in their music. Mixing languages and instruments, the orchestra plays to sold-out crowds and provides Italians with evidence about immigrants contrasting the typical stereotypes.
