CULTURAL COOPERATIVE SOCIETY
The Coopaso is a cultural cooperative registered in the commercial register, which organises musical events in collaboration and with the support from the city of Bellinzona since from 2011. For more institutional information, or for how to become a member of the Coopaso please look at our website.
COOPASO MUSIC EVENTS
Coopaso Music Events is a Coopaso stamp which proposes live music and is where the Bellinzona Blues sessions were born, a festival which is proposed since 2013. But not only: during the year musical events are organised which since the beginnings have always obtained a wide consensus by the public and from the media. The Coopaso organises all the events thanks to the voluntary work, by a group of collaborators and friends of live music, and is faithful to the contributions from sponsors, supporters and of the social quotations that have been paid by its own members.

BELLINZONA BLUES SESSIONS
Bellinzona Blues Sessions was born primarily to close a void left by the ceased activity of one of the most prestigious summer festival in Ticino and one of the most important on world level – The Piazza Blues Festival – and since the closure of the, Blues Temple in the Bellinzonese and not only – The Grotto Pasinetti (Paso) – and to get big musicians from the international Blues scene back to exhibit themselves in Bellinzona. Aware of the financial and organisational difficulties, Coopaso has always tried to evolve according to its resources. Nevertheless, it has always succeeded to satisfy the expectations of the demanding and competent public with musical choices of high quality, thanks to the obtained success in the past editions. Coopaso has therefore decided to increase the offer, to propose again an event at the beginning of summer on the same square which was used as the scene of 22 editions of Piazza Blues.
The Bellinzona Blues Sessions 2015 will be divided in 3 distinct phases: the winter & the spring sessions and summer open air. In particular, these last ones have been realised thanks to the big support from the city of Bellinzona.
