Opera in the Serchio Valley
Il Serchio delle Muse was founded in 2000 by Luigi Roni, an internationally renowned opera singer from the Garfagnana. It is a traveling music festival that takes place mainly in the most beautiful and evocative squares of the Garfagnana and Mediavalle. The musical association of the same name was formed in 2008 with the aim of providing a structure to the festival.
After the void left by the untimely death of its founder and mentor, Il Serchio delle Muse has found the strength to look ahead and has elected a new board of directors. Its president, Fosco Bertoli, former vice president of Banca del Monte and of the "Compriamo a Castelnuovo" association, as well as co-founder in 2008 of the Il Serchio delle Muse, and the whole board of directors, wish to give continuity to the work undertaken by maestro Roni, to disseminate the art of music and singing in the context of our beautiful area.
