"On 25th September 2015, the United Nations approved the Global Agenda for the sustainable development, where the judgment was clear about the unsustainability of the actual development model, not only on environmental level, but also economical and social, definitely overcoming the idea that the sustainability is exclusively an environment issue, and declaring a unified vision of different dimensions of development. The problematics connected to climate changes and global warming, are nothing but one of the many aspects of environmental unsustainability of our economic model: we continue to pursue an infinite growth on a planet that is finished with the capacity of producing resources and garbage disposal. In this scenario Val d’Orcia represents an exceptional example of how the natural paysage was redesigned since the Renaissance to reflect the ideals of the good governance and to create a pleasant esthetical look. This is an expression of marvelous natural characteristics, but also a testimony of how much weight had the presence or absence of human interference and his awareness of depending on surrounding ambient resources, and using them in nondestructive way. But today, Val d’Orcia has to deal with exploitation of an important resource present in the territory: the geothermal energy. Such energy source, that has always been considered clean and renewable, and its exploitation, affects both the natural balance and the "ancient pact" between man and nature, imposing a careful and reasoned reflection upon the perspectives of this outstanding territory."

"Climate changes are more than obvious, sometimes experiencing 4 seasons in one single day. We all notice, we talk about it, but are we really taking any actions to raise the awareness even more by also working on slowing down this process? This is the reason why we got interested in this initiative of Lola Perrin, thanks to my sister Marija Ligeti Balint’s involvement as pianist and composer. I like the idea of giving people a chance to think about these things through music, and involving experts in the field to engage in conversation, letting everyone express their experience and exchanging ideas that might give some answers to hows and whats. The concert programme is thought to be a spontaneous ambient improvisation, reflecting the thematics through how we feel about the human impact on nature." (Melinda Ligeti)
