Venice, Mantua, Cremona: the three main cities of Claudio Monteverdi’s life
Our main purpose is to retrace the same itinerary that Monteverdi used to do to reach his beloved cities. Each city claims its paternity, because all of them marked an important milestone in his artistic and personal life.
This is the starting point of the new edition of “Monteverdi Festival 2022”. This edition wants to undertake a counter-current route starting from Venice, visit Mantua and get to Cremona in the opening day of the Monteverdi Festival. A long weekend full of events!
In cooperation with Guindani Viaggi
