GARDEN OF THE MUNICIPAL LIBRARY – Cervia
The classic guitar in wrought iron, created by Aurelio Bagnolini, Castano, with the collaboration of Idraulica Davide Menghetti, comes to life again this year in the green area in front of Maria Goia municipal library in Cervia and draws its shadow with a formal composition made with nano myrtle and upholstery.
The only European musical event dedicated to the great virtuoso guitarist-composer of the nineteenth century “Luigi Legnani”, who held the last official concert of his career in Cervia on June 16, 1850 in the ancient city theatre.
The Festival was born from an idea of the master guitarist Giovanni DeMartini, with the aim of promoting the dissemination of young talented and emerging guitarists; since the first edition has achieved flattering successes, hosting famous artist from all over the world and collaborating exclusively with the prestigious guitar competition “Pittaluga” of Alexandria, considered the best in the world. The Festival was awarded in 2007 (unique in Italy) with a silver plaque of the President of the Italian Republic.
