Virtuoso & Belcanto Festival takes place in the city of Lucca. The Tuscan city has an enviable geographical location (ca. 80 km from the centre of Florence, and 30 km from the centre of Pisa and the beaches of the Tyrrhenian Sea), and has a long history, dating back to Roman times.
For many centuries an independent republic, Lucca is universally recognized as one of the most beautiful Italian cities. Completely surrounded by mighty Renaissance walls (total perimeter slightly over 4 km), still intact in their Medieval and Renaissance characteristics, Lucca has an extraordinary musical history, as it gave birth to musicians of the likes of Puccini, Boccherini, Geminiani, Catalani.
The 2021 educational program will take place at the Liceo Musicale and Real Collegio. Study spaces will be disseminated in various institutions and structures across the city of Lucca.
