For almost a century, the State Police Marching Band has carried the Italian flag all over the world, even collaborating with artists such as Claudio Baglioni, Stefano Bollani and Amii Stewart. Since its foundation in 1928, the ensemble has developed a symphonic vocation, thanks to the intuition of its first conductor, Maestro Giulio Andrea Marchesini, who approached the ensemble as if it were a real orchestra. This signature has remained unchanged over the years. As a result, their repertoire includes complex transcriptions and arrangements of operas and symphonies as well as original band music. Today, the hundred or so musicians who make up this fascinating ensemble bring their unmistakable sound to major events, turning every concert into an exciting experience for everyone.
