Art & Culture

Especially in the summer, the Versilia offers such an extensive range of exhibitions, concerts and events that one vacation is hardly enough to see everything.

Contemporary art is on display in countless galleries and studios and might be an inspiration for your own artwork. In Pietrasanta, the nearby artist city, temporary exhibitions present large scale works of art from famous artists.

The Museum of Pontremoli (about an hour by car from Azzano) exhibits wonderfully preserved and unique pre-Christian stone sculptures. Excellent contemporary land art can be visited in several sculpture parks.

Music lovers will find an extensive range of top-notch concerts from pop to classic. And the famous open-air Puccini Opera Festival takes place every August in Torre del Lago, where Giaccomo Puccini was born.

Lovers of Italian everyday culture can visit numerous street and village festivals, church events and markets where you can buy almost anything from clothes to live animals or art and antiquities.
