Barga Jazz Festival 2013

Barga Jazz Festival 2013 is held in Barga, that  is in the Garfagnana area of Tuscany in the province of Lucca. From August 17 to 31 the town of Barga is not only jazz music: there is an arrangement and composition contest for jazz orchestra, concerts, masterclass, a contest called Barga Jazz and “enojazz” that means wine tastings accompanied by jazz music! Born in 1986, BargaJazz Festival reaches the XXVII edition and it should be the perfect occasion to visit this delightful town located between the Tusco-Appennine hills and the magnificent Apuan Alps. Barga dates back to the early Middle Ages (VI-VIII centuries), it is dominated by a castle and protected by the city walls. Some steep and narrow streets lead up to the cathedral at the top of the hill, with views over the town and surrounding valley.
