Lucca Summer Festival takes place inside the city wall, in the old town centre of Lucca, “Piazza napoleone”. Started in 1998, this annual event has already drawn international big musicians like Elton John, Burt Bacharach, David Bowie, Rod Stewart, Ricky Martin, Oasis, U2 and Italian musicians like Roberto Benigni, Eros Ramazzotti, Zucchero Fornaciari, Pino Daniele, Biagio Antonacci and Georgia.
On July evenings, usually 10/12 concerts, the city opens its door to many international and national stars and their great music to satisfy a very wide audience always applauding and cheering.
The suggestive Piazza Napoleone is enriched by lights and colours and seems becoming a “good sitting room” with an elegant grandstand and a great stage, all framed by Palazzo Ducale and the Statue of Maria Louise of Borbon, which seems to be even more shining for this occasion.
This big exhibition is organised by Mimmo D’Alessandro, a great show business impresario, in collaboration with the City and Province of Lucca. He succeeded in developing it and generating such an important event worldwide.
We had the privilege to support Lucca Summer Festival from its early days managing its administrative, authorising procedures and providing its systems design. This event has great expectations and we have to respect many requirements but we are always gratified by the good results.
