The City of Modica Musical Band Belluardo-Risadelli was born on 23 June 2015 from the reorganization of a group of 7 musicians from the City of Modica Band, founded in the 70s of the last century. To date, the Belluardo-Risadelli Band has 70 active members in its staff and 75 students and 9 teachers in its Music School. Despite its young age, the City of Modica Musical Band Belluardo-Risadelli has already achieved great satisfaction, receiving appreciable recognition from the Administration of the City of Modica and from the general public for the many and remarkable activities that the musical complex has exercised since its inception.

The main stages of the short historical journey of the Band are the participation in the grandiose celebrations organized by the Municipality of Modica on the occasion of the Easter period, the celebration of the two Patron Saints of the city; San Giorgio and San Pietro, as well as the Christmas Concert with which the City of Modica Musical Band Belluardo-Risadelli pays homage to the city and its inhabitants.

In 2018, the Belluardo-Risadelli Band joined the ANBIMA National Association of Autonomous Italian Musical bands.

The concert activity still takes place at the provincial level but with the aims and intentions of establishing collaborative relationships through twinning at a national and international level.


“The performance and the music are hauntingly BEAUTIFUL…”

“This is AMAZING. My tears are running down. Music brings people together, and does not discriminate, or knows any boundaries.”

“I love how passionate and likeable the band was.”

“What is so impressive about the performance is the mature sound quality from such young players.”

“Fantastic, such a joy to see fabulous music like this alive and well in the world.”

“I hope it never ends. This was so beautiful. My compliments for this orchestra and the immortal sounds of music!”
