The Festival and the Masterclasses will take place in the historic center of Narni, a splendid medieval town in the province of Terni, located about an hour's drive from Rome.

For ten years now Narni has been the frame of our Festival and of the Masterclasses which, edition after edition, have generated a great cultural impact on the territory and an artistic value of the highest level. Our Masterclasses are open to all orchestral instruments, as well as singing, classical guitar, piano and composition, with a wide choice of teachers of international standing. The Festival runs at the same time with the Masterclasses, has about fifty events per season and represents an unmissable appointment in Narni's summer, which attracts a large influx of audience. In the last edition among students, teachers and artists we brought together about 300 people, from more than 20 different countries and 5 continents.
