The 162nd Anniversary of Giacomo Puccini’s birth



The 162nd Anniversary of Giacomo Puccini’s birth will be celebrated with an online concert broadcast simultaneously on the RaiCultura portal and on the Puccini Museum Facebook page.
Ten short musical gems curated by the Associazione Musicale Lucchese and by the Fondazione Giacomo Puccini will be performed by Simone Soldati on piano, Alberto Bologni on violin and Ludovica Rana on the cello.

A concert which, in the name of Giacomo Puccini, pays tribute to Lucca’s great musical tradition, from Francesco Geminiani, to Alfredo Catalani and Domenico Puccini, the musicians from the Puccini family, Luigi Boccherini, as well as Niccolò Paganini, who was long associated with the city of Lucca.
