About us

Chianti in Musica Chianti in Musica takes place in San Donato in Poggio, a wonderful medieval village halfway between Florence and Siena, which since 2023 has been part of the Borghi più Belli d’Italia.

The event takes place over 7/10 days between the end of July and the beginning of August. Since 2006, it has offered instrument and ensemble music courses, musical aperitifs, and concerts.

Palazzo Malaspina - a late Renaissance building recovered and enhanced through a major restoration project by the Municipality of Barberino Tavarnelle - hosts the courses and secretariat of Chianti in Musica. The primary school of San Donato in Poggio hosts the students for study.
The Theatre of the Philharmonic Circle is the venue for the piano masterclass lessons.

From 28 July to 2 August 2024, at 6.30 PM, the church of Santa Maria della Neve in the enchanting square in the historic center of San Donato in Poggio will host concerts by the best students of piano, flute, clarinet, oboe, violin, viola, cello, and guitar. After the performances, attendees can enjoy a delightful wine tasting, graciously provided by the Consorzio Vino Chianti Classico.

On Thursday, 1 August at 9,30 p.m., the church hosts the teachers of the courses who, as every year, give the townspeople and tourists a much-appreciated concert of their own.

All Chianti in Musica events are free admission.
In 2024, Chianti in Musica will take place in its 18th edition.
