FEDIORAM is born in 2015 after Italy hosted two major international festival of amateur music:
- European Festival of Amateur Orchestras, organized by EoFed – European Federation of Amateur Orchestras, Cremona, June 2015.
- World Festival of Amateur Orchestras, organized by WFAO – World Federation of Amateur Orchestras, Milan, September 2015.
After these festivals, the 4 founding orchestras (OSAI, Cremaggiore, Terrazzo Musicale and ContrArco) have decided to structure themselves into a federation, as in most of the world countries.
In December 2015 it was registered a statute and officially borns FEDIORAM, the Italian Federation of Amateur Orchestra, with a dual function of coordination and representation of Italian amateur orchestras on the one hand and of an annual festival organization to share the musical passion of its members.
