Culture Shock – Italy
Written by english on 4 novembre 2019
Culture Shock is a new series that we have launched on Euradio. Each week we take one European country and put it under the spotlight, looking at its musical and cultural outputs. Each day there are two instalments of the show; one looking at music, and the other at culture. This week we decided to take a trip down to Italy to learn all about the country’s history as several independent nation’s and about how its music has evolved from classical opera to American-style hip hop.
