Maggio della Musica - The Story

The duo Maggio della Musica and Maggio dei Monumenti was born in Naples in 1997. One of the main features of the Associazione Maggio della Musica has been always related to its locations: the Auditorium of Castel Sant’Elmo, the Reggia of Capodimonte, Villa Pignatelli and the Teatrino di Corte of the Real Palace built by Ferdinando Fuga in 1768.

The Historic connection with the Sovrintendenza Speciale per il Polo Museale of Naples, consolidated and reinforced during the years, includes important events such as two recitals, Il liuto di Caravaggio and Amor Vincitore, during the Caravaggio art exhibition at the Reggia of Capodimonte in 2004, other important recitals during the art exhibition dedicated to Domenico Morelli and to The Great Tiziano in 2006 and a famous concert to celebrate the 50th Capodimonte Museum’s Anniversary in 2007.
