Quintessentially free, spontaneous performing arts become the perfect opportunity to meet different attitudes and approaches to life, becoming a universal language, a tool for mutual respect and integration of peoples.

Yehudi Menuhin




“What guides us is children's response, their joy in learning to dance, to sing, to live together. It should be a guide to the whole world.”

Yehudi Menuhin

Life is an art and every second should be a moment of creation.”

Yehudi Menuhin

 About MUS-E®

Mus-e® (Musique Europe) is a European multicultural project targeting kindergartens and primary schools with a high percentage of migrant children, and children from difficult social and family backgrounds, using the performing arts to counteract social exclusion, marginalisation and discrimination.


Famous violinist and orchestra director Sir Yehudi Menuhin felt that primary schools were the right place to promote their potential for expression and observation capacities and relations of children, seeing cultural differences as an advantage and a precious opportunity to teach mutual respect.

The activities of the Mus-e® workshops are completely free for the schools and the students, and classes are involved for three years in weekly lessons during school hours.



The main tools used in the workshops, held by professional performers and artists are the different artistic languages, such as music, fine arts, dance, acting and mime.


Through the years of our experience with Mus-e®, we have seen how it has helped children to integrate, with the added value of generating positive effects in relations between students, teachers and artists and between families and school communities.


The numbers

Apart from Italy, the Mus-e® project is present in another twelve European countries, as well as in Brazil and in Israel.

Since Mus-e® Italia was established in 1999, the Project has registered considerable development across the whole of Italy - including the islands - involving more than 160 schools, 10,000 children and 250 professional performers and artists.
