MP Ambassador Ludovico Einaudi

Pianist and composer Ludovico Einaudi has a special connection with the mountains.

Einaudi says, "Today, mountains and their glaciers are undergoing irreversible transformations resulting from climatic upheavals linked to human action. These are transformations that affect us: the water and energy that we use daily and so many of the foods we eat come from mountains.

Through my music, I can offer inspiration and messages that can help support important causes. I have now decided to support the mountain cause, becoming an FAO Mountain Partnership Ambassador and dedicating my concert on the 11 December to mountains.

Science tells us that climate change is a devastating reality and mountains are at the center of it. They regulate life on earth and are a guarantee of life for us and for future generations. Let us save the mountains to save the planet and ourselves."


About Ludovico Einaudi

Einaudi was born in Turin on 23 November 1955. Perhaps it was his mother, an amateur pianist, who gave him the first impulse to music, planting the seeds for what would become a fruitful, illustrious career. He began to study music at the Conservatory of Turin and graduated with a diploma in composition under Azio Corghi at the Conservatory of Milan. Immediately he began post-graduate studies with Luciano Berio, with whom he worked as assistant, and later with Karlheinz Stockhausen. He then spent several years composing for the ballet, the cinema and the theatre.
