The Associazione Culturale Fryderyk Chopin (AFC), a non-profit organisation, was founded in Rome in 1987 by Maestro Marcella Crudeli, the internationally reknowned  concert pianist and acclaimed professor of music. The AFC organises concerts, international courses of advance music studies and the prestigious piano competition “Rome” held annualy since 1990. The aims of the association, in the words of Marcella Crudeli are: “To pay attention to the cultural and professional interest of young musicians in order to put them in the best position to face, with a more refined cultural deepening and a better experience, the difficult preparation of their job”.

Both the Commissione Nazionale Italiana per l’UNESCO and the International Federation of Chopin Societies has officially recognised the value of this competition. It is also a member of the Alink-Argerich Foundation.

The international piano competition “Roma” is held at the Cloister of the Confraternita di San Giovanni Battista dei Genovesi. The prize winners concert is live-streamed worldwide.
