The International Organ Music Festival is the first and most ancient organ festival in Italy and one of the oldest in Europe. It is an event of great importance that features major international organists playing an ancient Mascioni organ in the beautiful Basilica of San Vitale (Unesco world heritage site).
The 2019 edition proposes a varied and multicultural journey from the East to Italy passing through Dante, at the centre of the festival programme until 2021, the seventh centenary of Dante's death.
After the concerts, every evening will feature the event "Bollicine col Maestro", a convivial meeting with the performers at the Terrace of Atelier Annafietta Mosaici, located just in front of the Basilica of San Vitale.
