With the International Guitar Festival, now in its 14th edition, the town of Menaggio becomes the scene of a unique journey into the world of the guitar, with its varied sounds and musical languages: from contemporary classical guitar to fingerpicking, from South American music to jazz, giving a privileged space to the most innovative techniques of the instrument.
Starting in the afternoon, the alleys and venues of Menaggio come alive with "musical aperitifs" in which artists with different musical paths perform. Then, during the evenings in the picturesque setting of the churches, more intimate concerts take place, while on the stages one can enjoy performances that include dance, image, innovative sound and instrumental techniques.
