Giacomo Puccini (1858 – 1924) is one of Italy’s greatest operatic composers, having created seminal works such as La bohème, Tosca, Turandot and, featured here, Madama Butterfly.
As a tribute to the composer and his art, the Festival Puccini takes place every summer in Torre del Lago between Lucca (Puccini’s birthplace) and Viareggio, famed for its elegant 1920s architecture and sandy beaches.
Every summer visitors flock from across Italy and all over the world to experience Puccini’s greatest works performed at the open-air theatre Gran Teatro all’aperto Giacomo Puccini overlooking the beautiful Massaciuccoli lake.
The Filippo Berio factory is also based in Lucca, on the Massaciuccoli lake, and have a long-standing relationship with Festival Puccini, having proudly sponsored the event for several years.
