online > Chigiana International Festival & Summer Academy

Accademia Chigiana continues its efforts to promote the importance of music with “OurSounds, Music over the distance”, the sixth International Festival & Summer Academy that started on July 5th and will continue until September 3, 2020. 

The festival features three sections: Live Concerts, From the Archives and Beyond the Silence: 18 live events and 22 shows selected from the Chigiana’s digital archives broadcasted online for the very first time.

The section “From the Archives” is divided in two main sections: Opera Online and Legends Online. The first offers 6 historical recordings of musical staged theater, and the second one 16 music concerts from the past three years of symphonic, chamber and traditional music that can be enjoyed on Chigiana’s YouTube channel.

To reach a broader audience, more programs are also offered through the web radio ChigianaRadioArte, which covers the sections Opera and Legends On Air

ChigianaRadioArte is also the protagonist of the special project “Beyond the silence, music at the time of the pandemic”, which addresses the effects of the pandemic on the creativity of international composers and sound artists as they relate to technology. 


The entire program is available at 


By embracing a return to the roots of music, which was born in the most difficult moments endured by humanity, Chigiana’s goal is to envision a brighter future filled with music that can help us make it through this difficult time.

This project is promoted by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation through its network of the Italian Cultural Institutes.
