Thanks to the Festival in Spoleto breathes a unique atmosphere enveloping the city of Spoleto.The city is alive with artists from all over the world, and everything is mixed in an inextricable game between reality and fiction.

The first edition was organized in 1958 by the idea of ​​the Italian composer and librettist Gian Carlo Menotti. Two worlds compared, the European and the American, two different ways of understanding the arts, which are in the town of Spoleto their meeting point. The city was not chosen at random. With its prime location, its theaters, churches, and the wonderful Cathedral Square, is the patron of the event seemed the ideal city to spread the spirit of the festival, that is its internationality. For many years, in fact, visiting artists were mostly foreigners and even today this festival resonates strongly worldwide. Artists from the "two worlds" involved bringing on stage their performances in theater, opera, dance, music, painting. Starting generally from late June until the third week of July, the whole city turns into a big container stage where there are also scientists and researchers.

To underline its importance, we were set up two other similar events, the Spoleto Festival USA (commonly called Piccolo Spoleto Festival) Charleston, South Carolina and Australia's Melbourne International Arts Festival.
