Solo Bel Canto
Solo Belcanto is a Festival that was born in 2014 from the passion for music, for opera, for the belcanto. Not limited to a precise period in the history of opera, the first Italian nineteenth century, but expanded to the concept of “beautiful singing”, noble, expressive, capable of moving and moving. It was born in the medieval village of Montisi, a splendid place in the Tuscan countryside, in an area that lies between the Crete Senesi and the Val d’Orcia. Born in his theater, the one of Grancia, one of the smallest in the world: just 60 seats, divided between an audience and three stages. From 2018 concerts are also held in Montalcino, in the eighteenth-century Teatro degli Astrusi. The creation of Solo Belcanto is due to the generosity of the artists, singers and accompanist pianists, and of those, public and private institutions, who enthusiastically believe in this cultural project.
Giostra di Simone
The Giostra di Simone is a cultural event that takes place in Montisi, a fraction of the municipality of Montalcino, in the province of Siena. This is the re-enactment of a medieval carousel in which the four districts of the village clash (Castello, Piazza, San Martino and Torre) and takes place in the middle of the afternoon on the Sunday closest to 5 August. The “Panno”, a banner with the image of the Madonna with Child, is assigned to the winning district.
