The first time that San Francesco al Prato hosted Umbria Jazz concerts was in 1987, with the Gil Evans Orchestra.  In 1997, after the earthquake, the long journey towards the restoration of the monument and its conversion into an auditorium began, in keeping with the new vocation that the church had acquired  during those unforgettable nights of Umbria Jazz.
