City of Music

You are here

Alongside the main character of Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924), Lucca can boast a gallery of musicians that make her musical tradition unique, as Francesco Geminiani (1687-1762), Luigi Boccherini (1743-1805), Alfredo Catalani (1854-1893) and Gaetano Luporini (1865-1948 ).

On the basis of this illustrious and precious tradition, love and worship for excellent music are cared for and promoted in Lucca through many events that enhance both the quality of the musical heritage presented to the general public, and the relation of its executions and representations with the most distinguished and prestigious places in the city and in the beautiful surrounding countryside.
