La Spezia is celebrating the end of summer by holding two classical concerts which explore classical music in different ways.

Tomorrow (Augest 10th) ‘Music Under the Stars’ will be performed in the open air in Piazza Saint-Bon. The Flutist Tito Ciccarese and the accordion player Gianni Fassetta will be playing a selection of music including work by Mozart, Piazzolla and Verdi.

Next Saturday soprano Silvia Martinelli, flutist Fabio Taruschio and pianist Andrea Found present ‘The Opera in Concert’ outside the Church of St John and Augustine. The concert is a celebration of the bicentenary of the birth of Verdi and will feature his work from ‘La Traviata’, ‘Il Trovatore’ and ‘Rigoletto’.

Entry to both events is free.
