Eni supported the 2013 international tour of the La Scala Chamber Orchestra.
The concert at MIT was the first date on the American tour of the La Scala Chamber Orchestra.
The US tour was part of the 2013 – L'anno della cultura italiana negli Stati Uniti (2013 Year of Italian Culture in the United States) an initiative organised under the auspices of the Italian Presidency and Foreign Ministry and the Italian Embassy in Washington DC, with the support of Eni, as Corporate Ambassador.
Eni has worked with the La Scala Chamber Orchestra since 2012, supporting their international tours. Thanks to Eni's support, concerts were made possible in Moscow, Oxford and Istanbul.
The partnership between Eni and the La Scala Chamber Orchestra has enabled an American audience to discover yet another example of Italian excellence, one of the most renowned and appreciated chamber ensembles in the world.
