Immersed in an area of extraordinary natural beauty, the Festival has strong ties with visual art and the artistic gesture in general.

Velasco Vitali paints the essence of its deepest themes, gifting the eye of every listener with imagination, expressing the energy of the music which characterizes each program.

Visione, intimate process of imagination, representation, interpretation that characterizes the creative experience of artists and composers, of man, who over the centuries in stimulating an evolutionary path creates an increasingly rich possibility of listening and understanding.

A magical territory, capable of unique suggestions that leave the soul and senses breathless together with the bright colors of authors from four centuries of history will give the opportunity to stop and admire nature and creations from the privileged point of view of those who have left these priceless traces value, constant and timeless nourishment.

Vision of light stimuli capable of impressing changing colors on the mind even during the darkest hours of the night. Apparitions, images, completely extraordinary scenes, real or imagined… states of ecstasy, miraculous and supernatural situations, utopian dreams.

From the revolutionary “Don Quixote” by Cervantes, Georg Philipp Telemann traces the path of this bizarre character capable of impossible deeds in the name of imaginative hallucinations, perhaps achievable only for a crazy and passionate soul.



Breathing what is between the notes, breathing the soul of the composer and listening to his deep heartbeat is perhaps the main motivation for bringing a musical page back to life, or rather freeing its essence. Each writing has its own organization, depth, and resonance. Perceiving and understanding its biorhythm, its expansion in space, is the purest game of the performer, who has the task of becoming a conductor between the soul of the composer and that of the listener. As musicians, if we breathe the essence of the composer into the listener, then we will have left something that can germinate and become a source of other creativity.

After all, essence is therefore like pollen carried from one flower to another to bear fruit and create more lifeblood, more beauty. This search for the invisible tension of the composer’s inner sound world, the engine of making music, therefore turns out to be a much wider phenomenon than one might imagine, which stimulates continuous regeneration.



De-siderare (to desire), to stare towards something that draws our attention, or conversely to look away when we perceive an absence experienced as a passionate and endless search.

In a word, a desire. The energy that pulls us beyond our everyday reality, where what really matters is the act of desiring itself.

Movimento” is what we all feel when we feel a push to reach a new stage in our life or creative process.
Physically and spiritually a necessary “Movement” of the soul and body that leads to a change of point of view and life condition.

Dreaming is essential to the birth and creation of any trace Man can leave.

Dreaming is vision, and thanks to it a person follows a path, undertaking a voyage which, when finished, will leave him transformed.


– 2017 –

Inspired by the well-known composition, The Planets

by Gustav Holst, the 2017 edition of the Festival presents the original version for two pianos in a program that encompasses the musical production of the 19th century, as well as romantic and antique periods, with a taste for the numerous colors and perfumes of music through the ages.
