New location of the event, in the section of urban walls between Baluardo Santa Croce and Baluardo San Donato:


Il settecento musicale a Lucca

Lucca is reconfirmed "city of music" paying particular attention to the musical productions of that eighteenth century music that, as is known, had in the city of Lucca one of its world capitals. Once again, the specific contribution from Lucca will stand alongside the greatest European composers of the time, from Bach to Haydn and from Händel to Mozart.


The 2018 edition of the festival includes over 40 events between January and December dedicated to Lucca's eighteenth-century music and distributed in various musical programs


The time of Lucca

Bell'Italia, a well-known television broadcast on air on RAI 3 at 11:00 am, in the episode of January 20 dedicates a nice report to the Clocktower and its centuries-old clock that from Tuesday 16 January will mark the time of Lucca again, as it did for many centuries before it got damaged.

Our Francigena route

A public meeting on the strategic choices in view of the creation of a homogeneous tourist offer in Tuscany.
After the events held in Fucecchio, Pontremoli and Siena, o Friday January 19, “La nostra Francigena. Territori protagonisti del tempo delle scelte” (Territories as protagonists of the time of choices) will also take place in Lucca, at Palazzo Ducale.

ARTOWN - Contemporary Art Exhibition

Not only the Middle Ages and Renaissance in the walled city. Art is a habit that has been preserved to this day. In 1977, the Lucchese Association of Art Figurative gave to the Municipality of Lucca 140 works of painting, sculpture and graphics designed for the constitution of a permanent Museum of Modern Art that valorizes the important artistic heritage; since then the collection has been enriched with numerous private donations, which have so far been dispersed in various communal offices or stored in stores that are not accessible to the public.


Welcome heroes to LC&G 2017!

Year 51: Lucca Comics and Games can be Heroes ... at least for 5 days!

The second half century of the Festival opens with the "manifesto" of the values ​​shared with the audience. New guests announced in the Activision Square, (Santa Maria Square). It will be dedicated to the Heroes of paper, pixel, celluloid, but above all in flesh and bone heroes who travel to create each year the largest community event in Europe.


Walk: a special experience that continues to train Europeans

Santiago de Compostela, Via Francigena, Sant'Olav Street. The Council of Europe's Itineraries also include real paths along which our History has been built and that it is possible to walk through the stairs for the night as they were pilgrims, knights and merchants in the past.


On foot, by bicycle, on horseback or on the back of a donkey like Robert Louis Stevenson who in 1878 left Monastier-sur-Gazeille (Upper Loire) with Modestine donkey and in 12 days of travel and many adventures came to Saint-Jean -du-Gard.
