THE GREAT CONCERTS, AN EXTRAORDINARY MEETING
Varignana Music Festival Discover the event

Varignana Music Festival
2 - 11 July 2020

 
Palazzo di Varignana’s exquisite beauty is conducive to the development of special projects.
The Varignana Music Festival is a summer classical-music event that each year welcomes some of the most acclaimed international musicians in a series of stimulating concerts. Developed together with the Musica Insieme Foundation, the Festival’s refined programme has an original format: at the end of every concert, a dinner with the artists extends the audience’s contact with the performers beyond the stage in a fitting conclusion to a magic encounter.
