The Puccini Festival is staged in its most beloved location


In the open-air Grand Theatre of Torre del Lago, which stands on the shore of his favourite lake, Massaciuccoli, next to his beloved villa where he is buried, the festival dedicated to the composer Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924), author of some of the most acclaimed Italian operas, from Bohéme to Madame Butterfly, from La ragazza del West to Tosca and Turandot, is staged every year between July and August. 

Each edition features a number of operas in several performances, as well as symphonic music concerts, recitals and exhibitions that represent some of the most popular events organised on the Tuscan coast.  

The Puccini Festival is the highest tribute paid to the musician from Lucca, in the place that best represents him: on the lake he loved to organise hunting parties, while in the villa he found the congenial environment to compose his music, surrounded by the paintings of his Macchiaioli friends, his beloved cars, just two kilometres from the coast and the sea of Versilia. 

Villa Puccini is open to the public and we see it today as the musician left it, with its Art Nouveau furnishings and numerous objects that tell of his personal and artistic life.
