You may also support the Festival by getting involved on a more personal level:

With the initiative “Adopt a student,” it’s possible to host a student during the festival, giving them the opportunity to reside in the city and practice their instrument at home. Making one’s piano available to a student for individual practice or rehearsals is another valuable  and welcome way to support the festival.

If you would like to lend your support in this way, please contact .

Lastly, the initiative “Become a volunteer” is an opportunity to be involved in the production and organization of the Virtuoso & Belcanto Festival from start to finish. Write to us at


Virtuoso & Belcanto

The Virtuoso & Belcanto Festival and Summer Academy is a celebration of the history and musical heritage of the city of Lucca. Famous composers such as Puccini, Boccherini, and Geminiani along with many others, were born within its walls. Lucca and its theater also happen to be where Paganini became Paganini. The Festival seeks to revitalise this unique musical heritage by creating an opportunity for young musicians from all over the world to come together with prominent international artists and teachers. It will be an intensive two weeks of lessons, masterclasses, chamber music coaching, and concerts, focused primarily on repertoire from the classic and early romantic periods. In honor of Luigi Boccherini, the Festival will be dedicated above all, to chamber music, and will be experienced from three different but related perspectives: concerts, study, and competitions.
