Happy Birthday Pietrasanta in Concerto!

Ten years ago already, the festival was born. Our anniversary is a good time to reflect and remember all the great musical moments and human encounters we've had - and to look forward to the next ten years!

Looking at the list of artists, musicians, actors, dancers, composers and ensembles who performed at our festival since its beginning, I am truly amazed at its quality and variety.

Interestingly enough, the recipe hasn’t changed much over the years: total freedom given to the musicians to create the program they believe in, and a mix of chamber, orchestral, classical and world music, all performed in the unique acoustics of our Chiostro San Agostino, in the magic setting of the Piazza Duomo in Pietrasanta.

A very special thanks to our structural sponsor, the Groupe Edmond de Rothschild in Milano, who made it possible to reach this level of excellence, and to the city of Pietrasanta for having been the best possible hosts!

This edition of 2016 offers thirteen concerts, the most ever, a strong sign that we believe in our future. This year again, we have returning stars and new talents that deserve to be heard in Italy.

Please join me in welcoming them and celebrate together ten years of music making under the stars.
