The Italian institute Dimore del Quartetto (in English Residence of Quartets) has launched another project, called Merita. According to the press release, it is a digital and real circuiting platform whose main objective is to increase the visibility and circulation of emerging European string quartets through a dedicated platform. The project development will last 3 years and involve 38 quartets, totaling 152 artists.

The digital platform will be the nerve center from which all activities will unfold. Indeed, the platform will become the promotional showcase for artists, the presentation of cultural sites and historic houses, educational materials, networking and content for the public, and the panel of online and on-site activities, namely trainings, artistic residencies, transnational and international circulation of young artists, studies, research and mapping.

The platform will also enable bringing new audiences closer to classical music and to places of cultural interest that are identifiable with European heritage.

Le Dimore del Quartetto will coordinate the work of 16 organizations from 12 European countries.
