65° Festival Puccini
Founded in 1930 and dedicated to the music of the great opera composer Giacomo Puccini, the Puccini Festival is attended every year by thousands of spectators coming from around the world, thanks in part to its location, the seaside Versilia. The festival is held in the summer, at the Gran Teatro all’Aperto Giacomo Puccini, overlooking Lake Massaciucoli, near Villa Puccini, which the composer built in 1900. The calendar vaunts a unique repertoire of Puccini’s pieces, with the added touch of the aromas of the sea floating in the air.
