The Associazione musicale Massarosa  was founded with the purpose of improving musical culture through education and promotion of music in an area already featuring international concert seasons in Pieve a Elici and Corsanico. The Associazione‘s principal objective is the management of an International Piano Competition financed with private and public support.

The competition gives young musicians the opportunity to exploit their musical  qualities, and at the same time makes even more explicit Massarosa’s musical vocation, tying this event to the promotion of the territory with its cultural, environmental and artistic values.

It is held in the month of June, in Massarosa, in the Teatro “Vittoria Manzoni” and is open to pianists of maximum 30 years of age.

The artistic director is Riccardo Risaliti and the jury is composed by musicians of international reputation.
