The Competition is open to musicians of all nationalities, who were born after the 31st December 1986.
Competitors are requested to bear in mind that one of the main aims of the Competition is the live performance of the winning scores in Bologna, Piazza Maggiore. Therefore the Jury will not take into consideration either scores unsuitable for open-air performance – even if through an appropriate amplification.
