The National Centre for Rare Diseases – Istituto Superiore di Sanità (National Institute of Health) (Rome, Italy) is pleased to announce the launch of the 10th (X) Edition of the national Musical- literary- artistic competition Flight of Pegasus dedicated to rare diseases.

Narrative and poetry artworks must be written in Italian.
The intercultural networking of the event, made by finalists, critics, musicians, curators, scientists, public and private institutions and citizens make Flight of Pegasus an exciting occasion for artists to promote their art through many channels.

In that occasion, all admitted works will be exhibited. The winning music composition will be played by an Italian professional string quartet.
