The Indian tour was sponsored by the The Consulate General of Italy in Calcutta, in collaboration with the Calcutta School of Music and the Mumbai Italian Cultural Institute.
The first recital was on September 24th 2015 in Calcutta. The event was attended by 200 guests, with the special presence of the Italian General Consulate, Cesare Bieller, who appreciated the performance of Mirco Patarini so much that he invited him again for more concerts in the future.
The second concert was on September 25th and was organized by the Calcutta School of Music. The auditorium was completely full.
Another great success was the recognition of Patarini’s talent by the Indian musicians
The last concert, on September 27th, was organized by the Mumbai Italian Cultural Centre.
