In 2015, Fabio, a marine biologist with a huge passion for rock music, convinced 1.000 musicians from all over Italy gathering in Cesena to play “Learn to Fly”, the famous Foo Fighters' hit. His aim was to convince Dave Grohl, the leader of the band, to come and play in his town. A video clip of the performance together with Fabio’s speech was published on YouTube and it was viewed more than 50 million times. Soon afterwards Dave Grohl got the message and he decided to make the dream of the thousand comes true by bringing Foo Fighters to play in the village of Cesena. That was the beginning of an incredible adventure that created the hugest community of rock music lovers ever.
