Music in Lucca is a heritage that has been handed down over time.
A lot of quality music is played in Lucca, in canonical and singular places: in schools, churches, monumental halls of historical buildings, in the ancient cloisters of convents and in the public squares, in private gardens and lounges. Many events take place throughout the year and give space to the many forms of music.
