"Stick Center Italia" is the first academy of Chapman Stick in Italy directed by the Stick-man Atreio and based in the "Rockland" music school of the city of Grosseto, Tuscany. The mission of "Stick Center Italia" is to join all Italian Stick-men together and to create classes, meetings and concerts and to collaborate with other Stick Centers all over the world to promote the Stick and his artists. In September 29th 2013 there will be the first free meeting in the Center. A very big "thank you" to "Stickistas" for his confidence, rock and roll!!!
