Milan (ITALY) – Two world legends of music and sport will be for the first time together on the same stage for a unique show: Andrea Bocelli and Javier Zanetti are proud to announce “Bocelli and Zanetti Night”, an international charity event that will be held on May 25th, 2016 at 21.00 at the Expo Open Air Theatre in Milan.

Bound by a strong social commitment, friendship and mutual esteem, Bocelli and Zanetti have decided to join forces for a unique night of solidarity which will be an opportunity to celebrate the reopening of the Expo site and symbolically introduce the final of the UEFA Champions League that will be played in Milan three days later.

Foundation Onlus and to Andrea Bocelli Foundation, engaged in specific projects focused on the education of children of South and Central America.

Funds raised through all activities related to the event will be in favour of the project “Educated towards a better world”, born from the common will of the two Foundations to use both education as a way to self-affirmation of children and their families in poor areas  and school as a place to guarantee the opportunity to fulfill their potential for their own development. This in order to generate the consciuosness that change must go to and from them.

The fundraising will help to ensure access to education to over 500 children in Buenos Aires and 1,750 students in Haiti.
