Barga and Puccini


The calendar of events for the Puccini Centenary in Barga

That of Barga and Puccini is a relationship that comes from afar and on the centenary of the Maestro's death finds full consecration thanks to the rich program of events: concerts, shows, presentations and exhibitions pay homage to the art and musical genius of the Maestro from Lucca and at the same time retrace Puccini's relationship with Barga, making particular reference to his connection with Giovanni Pascoli, with whom relations were frequent, as is also shown by the documents preserved in the Giovanni Pascoli House Museum in Castelvecchio Pascoli.
