The Puccini Festival

The Puccini Festival is a summer music festival that takes place in Torre del Lago, where Giacomo Puccini lived for over thirty years composing many of his masterpieces.

Born in 1930, it takes place every summer, usually in the months of July and August, at the Grand open-air theater, a structure with 3200 seats (also known as "Teatro dei Quattromila"), located on the shores of Lake Massaciuccoli near the Villa. Puccini, the house that the composer had built in 1900 and in which he lived until 1921, when he moved to Viareggio due to the pollution of the lake. The remains of the composer are kept in the villa and you can admire artifacts and relics of his personal life and his artistic life.

In all editions works by Puccini have been represented; over the years collateral events have been added (also held in other spaces), such as concerts composed by other masters, recitals by singers, art exhibitions, theatrical readings.
