Happenings in Cortona

A fellow reader asked me to post any information I had on events occurring in Cortona. Remember my Off-the- Beaten Trail of Cortona? Well, if you are a new reader, or would simply like to re-read these posts, click here, here, and here. As promised, here is what will be happening in Cortona this summer.

The Festival del Sole, or the Sun Festival, which occurs every summer since it began in the 1990s thanks to Barrett Wissman and cellist Nina Kotova, who discussed their idea with writer Frances Mayes. You can find out more about the festival by visiting their 'About the Festival' page.

This year's festival will be held from July 30 until August 5, and aims to explore the five senses by including musical performances, art exhibitions, and of course food. Artists this year include:

Nina Kotova
Trudie Styler
Joshua Bell
Gabriele Lavia
Irina Dvorovenko

Is anyone going this year?
