The repertories will cover three centuries of music, from Bach to the present, including Ludwig van Beethoven, in the 250th anniversary of his birth, and Astor Piazzolla, anticipating his 100th anniversary in 2021.
After each concert, about 50 minutes long, the audience will receive a glass of wine, offered by different producers: Cuvage of Acqui Terme AL, Cantina di Casorzo AT, Tenuta Conti Zecca di Leverano LE, Azienda Agricola Podere Magia di San Polo D’Enza RE, Azienda Agricola Romaldo Greco di Seclì LE, Casa vinicola de Puppi di Moimacco UD.
