New Prez For Italian Promoters' Body

Gradella succeeds Meglioli at Assomusica.

Ilaria Gradella has been appointed president of Assomusica, the Rome-based Italian concert promoters association.

She succeeds Roberto Meglioli, who has filled the role for the last four years. Gradella was elected for a two-year term at the organization's annual general meeting March 22-23 in Rome.

Gradella, 33, is a promoter in Parma with Caos Organizzazione Spettacoli. She has worked as Assomusica's treasurer for the last four years.

Meglioli, who runs Medials Live/City Medial Two, will continue to serve Assomusica as part of its 10-member governing body, which was also appointed during the meeting.

Assomusica has more than 100 members, comprising promoters, agents and concert producers.
