For the special celebration of the 100th anniversary of the death of Giacomo Puccini,we started a collaboration with the only one dedicated to Puccini, the Fondazione Festival Pucciniano, by offering an opera program in which singers invited will perform in Suor Angelica by Maestro Puccini staged in two productions, one with the orchestra of the Festival Pucciniano and the other one with pianist and vocal coach Milo Martani, renowned Italian vocal coach, collaborating with famous opera singers. They will be accompanied and assisted in diction lessons, voice masterclasses, seminars on Puccini offered by an international faculty which comprehend guests from the Festival Pucciniano. Other opportunities will be a performance on opera scenes in a beautiful location in Tuscany, visiting Torre del Lago, where Puccini was born and other recreational activities. The singers who will distinguish themselves in the production might be invited to further collaboration in the 2024/2025 season.


Our faculty represents the major institutions around the world and we have guest artists joining for all seminar activities. For any further information please check out our website: and if you have any questions in completing any phase of the application process, contact us via email at
