The golden age of the mandolin

The golden ages of the mandolin, in Italian “ Le Età d’Oro del Mandolino”, is an homage to the great Italian Musical Tradition, focusing on the mandolin as a symbol of Italy.

Thanks to its popular tradition and its big culture, this iconic instrument shows its versatility, commitment, and virtuosity also through the rediscovery of the so-called “minor” authors, who wrote pages of absolute artistic value. We will take the audience on a new fascinating imaginary journey through Italian regions, centuries, and musical styles.
