EMN is a non-profit organization created in 1987 and since then has been involved in different sectors of culture and living arts, from dance to classical music and jazz, but also opera, early music and traditional polyphonic music and also focusing on rediscovering and preserving traditional music from around the Mediterranean.
Since 1989, EMN has yearly organized the Nuoro Jazz International Festival, and its workshops, which are among the most important festivals in Italy and Europe. Paolo Fresu started Nuoro Jazz and has been the artistic director for 25 years, Roberto Cipelli took over from him in 2013. Each year, more than 160 students from all over Europe participate in winter and summer jazz training, in cooperation with local schools and cultural organisations, and international and Italian institutions of higher education. Teachers are among the best jazz musicians of the Italian scene, and every year international artists are called upon to keep masterclasses and special events.
