Festival di Villa Arconati

Festival di Villa Arconati

The strength of the Festival has always been the passion and motivation that guides the group of people who created it, cultivated it and never stopped it.

The years marked by the pandemic, 2020 with the "limited edition" and 2021 which had made sobriety a winning artistic choice, made it possible to keep the tradition of the Festival alive, recreating the premises of love and mutual respect with the public, which he finds in the suggestive location, framed between the south facade of the Villa and the Italian and French gardens, that taste and those intuitions that have led the Festival to have, and confirm, the success it has had.
In 2022 the kermesse presents itself to the public in a renewed guise, which combines different musical styles with the author theater, but which returns to resume the tradition of the evening schedule with two musical forays at dusk and dawn, to experience a immersive experience in art and nature. All around the beauty of a simply unique setting, thanks also to the recent restorations that have made Villa Arconati even more bewitching.
All the shows will start at 9 pm, with the exception of those on Saturday 9 July, at 8 pm, and on Sunday 10 July, at 6 am.

The Festival 1989 – 2021On warm summer evenings, thousands of contemporary "travelers" reach Castellazzo to attend a concert by nationally and internationally renowned musicians.
The Villa Arconati Festival is a musical and cultural project created thanks to the collaboration between the Municipality of Bollate, the Augusto Rancilio Foundation and the supporters of the event. The origin of the event dates back to 1985, the year in which Villa Arconati was opened to the public for the first time to host classical music concerts. The music festival would have given way in 1989 to the Villa Arconati Festival, which, over the years, has established itself as one of the most prestigious events of the Milanese summer. The great involvement and the strong attraction that the Festival exerts on the public are proof of how it is possible to promote highly prestigious and successful cultural events in the hinterland of a large city like Milan.
