GIUSEPPE PENNISI visits
Italy's Sagra Musicale Umbra

 

The Sagra Musicale Umbra is the oldest music Festival in Italy. Its 65th edition has had special features when compared with any other European festival: it was a nine day journey (10-19 September 2010) through an entire region where it combined the beauty of landscape, monuments and arts that have few parallels anywhere. The integration between music, on the one hand, and various forms of visual art, on the other, has been an essential element of the nine days -- with nearly twenty five concerts and lectures.
