Three months of music and art around Lake Como for summer events and concerts
THURSAY 14 JUNE – SATURDAY 15 SEPTEMBER 2018
In 2011, on the occasion of the second centennial of the birth of the Hungarian composer Franz Liszt, and in the 150th year of the Unification of Italy, the first edition of the Bellagio Festival was born, with concerts, master classes, meetings, seminars and cultural tourist itineraries inspired by the Hungarian composer, who spent some of the most important months of his life and artistic career at Bellagio and Como.
From the first edition until today, with more than two hundred events, the festival has traced out a route of art, music and literature in a project of cultural tourism that spans the entire Lake region. For 6 previous editions, the artistic merit of the festival was recognized by the President of the Italian Republic, who bestowed his Medal of Honour upon the Festival of Bellagio and Lake Como.
The concerts and the artists will show their arts and their magic music not only in Bellagio, the Pearl of Lake Como, but also around the towns and villages on Lario, as Mandello del Lario, Varenna, Lecco, Torno.
The complete calendar of events and concerts is updated on the website.
