The mistery of beauty
This summer, the music will play again in the Pisan countryside, filling the Tuscan hills with an extraordinary charm.
On 22 and 24th July, from 21.30 to 23.30, the unmissable annual and international appointment with the famous live concert-event of the great Tenor Andrea Bocelli will be renewed. As usual, the event will be held at the Teatro del Silenzio (Theater of Silence) in Lajatico.
This enchanted place, a natural amphitheater, is the result of an eco-architecture and Land-art project by Alberto Bartalini. It consists of a small lake located on a silent hill, about a kilometer and a half away from the town. A panorama of unequal beauty surrounds it, able to offer a 180° view of the Volterran hills.
Since 2006, during this unforgettable event, the theater has been hosting internationally renowned artists, not only singers, like Laura Pausini, Dua Lipa and Mika, but also dancers, like Roberto Bolle and Eleonora Abbagnato, and opera singers, like Igor Mitoraj and Arnaldo Pomodoro.
The performances’ theme changes every year and it is symbolized by a statue located in the center of the amphitheater. For 2021, the mystery of beauty has been chosen as the main theme of the event and it has represented through two Manolo Valdés’ monumental sculptures: “Clio Dorada” and “Irene”. Both these statues embody the image of attractiveness, two heads of seductive female figures with simplified features, dominated by impressive and unique decorative elements in bronze and brass.
Nature and Beauty will be the keys of this concert. Nature, as the celebration of this magical land that has so much to offer, emotionally and physically; Beauty, as the expression of the harmony among human being and the rest of creation.
The Theater of Silence is the embodiment of these two attributes by itself, but the event will be able to enchant its peculiarities even more, adding a little bit of modernity to this immortal location, unaffected by the flow of time. It will be an unrepeatable experience (every year the show is renewed and changes completely) that, in just two hours, will embrace several artistic and cultural fields.
As usual, the host will be the great Andrea Bocelli, an internationally renowned Italian tenor. A great man and artist for whom music and love for his homeland, Tuscany, are indissolubly intertwined in his life as well as in this event.
Live this mystical Tuscan experience, listen to the powerful voice of one of the most famous Italian artists and enjoy an exceptional live music event, with great national and international guests.
