Lucca and its famous composers


Lucca boast an almost unequalled music tradition including composers such as: Nicolao Dorati, Cristoforo Christoforo Malvezzi, Francesco Barsanti, Gioseffo Guami, Francesco Geminiani, Luigi Boccherini, Alfredo Catalani and Giacomo Puccini. Such distinguished tradition derives from the fact that music events were regarded as an important element of political and social life, at the time when Lucca was the capital of a small independent State.


- The birthplace museum of Puccini (is currently undergoing renovations), the Teatro del Giglio, the famous Caffè Di Simo, meeting point for the artists and musicians in Lucca
 - Church of San Paolino and San Donato, where July 12 in 1880 Puccini presented for the first time Four Voice Mass with full orchestra, on the occasion of the feast of San Paolino
