The event will be broadcast online on the official website and will be enriched by a concert of the brass quintet "Milano Luster Brass" at Palazzo Arese Borromeo in Cesano Maderno and will perform wonderful transcriptions of great opera arias, from Charpentier to Mozart and Verdi, conducted by Andrea Scarduelli, artistic director of the competition.
UN-Water, co-organizer of the photo contest, dedicates World Water Day to promoting concrete activities around the world to raise people's awareness of the right to water. The Lions Club Seregno AID stimulates awareness of respect for drinking water through photography and supports international actions for access to water resources for populations in need, such as the project "Koom la viim" (Water is Life) in Burkina Faso, which will be completed in 2021 thanks to the contribution of all of you, participants and supporters. Lions chairpersons, representatives of participating institutions, associations and sponsors of the World Water Day Photo Contest will remind us that the commitment of the entire human society is necessary and mandatory to responsibly and generously guarantee drinking water and hygienic services to humanity.
