Europiano 2018 in Val di Fiemme

Val di Fiemme is known worldwide for its music trees and, for the second time, will host the international Congress Europiano thanks to the collaboration between Aiarp, the Italian Association of piano tuners and repairers. Piano tuners and enthusiasts are invited to participate.  

Stefano Bollani

Francesco Grillo

From 20 to 24 May 2018, the modern convention centre PalaFiemme in Cavalese, surrounded by the Dolomites of Trentino, will translate Europiano 2018 events into 4 languages. It will feature the duo piano concert by Stefano Bollani  and  Francesco Grillo, a jam session and a visit to the new seat of  Fazioli Pianoforti. Val di Fiemme, also called “Harmony Valley”, offers a six day full-immersion in the world of pianos, where European, Asian and American skilled piano tuners, technicians and restorers will seek the perfect sound. Crew members can attend guided tours and excursions in the whole Trentino, from Garda Lake to the Dolomites as far as the Sounding Forest in Predazzo, where tone spruces, once loved by Stradivari and nowadays by international violin makers and piano manufacturers, were named after world-renowned musicians.

    HALF-DAY VISIT TO PARCO DELLA PIEVE AND TO THE FRANCISCAN CLOISTER OF CAVALESE Parco della Pieve is a green area in Cavalese, full of centuries-old lindens. It has always been the social, economic and religious core of Val di Fiemme. In Parco della Pieve, famous for its “banco della reson” where they carried out trials in the ancient times, there is Santa Maria Assunta church, Sette Dolori della Beata Vergine Maria sanctuary and the ancient cemetery. S.Vigilio church and the Franciscan Friars convent represent a remarkable art value for Cavalese and are very interesting centres of art for the presence of paintings by important painters born in Fiemme. The church has two steep sloping roofs covered with shingles and a large tympanum on the main façade in which a Cross of Lorraine is perforated. Inside, three wood altars built in the seventeenth century in an austerely Franciscan style.

    HALF-DAY VISIT: "Have a nice 'cheese' journey" Guided visit to the Cheesemaking factory of Cavalese, famous for the World Champions Formae Val Fiemme and for the goat’s cheese.

Every summer, in this forest they perform a unique musical ritual conceived by Claudio Delvai. Here, internationally-famous musicians taking part in “The Sounds of the Dolomites” music festival choose their spruce. It’s a gift Val di Fiemme gives to whom spreads sublime melodies in the world, with instruments that may be created with the wood grown in these forests that are welcoming and well-kept thanks to the thousand-year old Magnifica Comunità di Fiemme’s management.
