to September - Special Events:
The current Ravello Festival
derives from a series of previous initiatives which make it the oldest of
the Italian festivals after the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino.
Girolamo Bottiglieri and Paolo Caruso are to be attributed with the idea of
the cultural event which, more than any other thing, has contributed towards
building the identity of Ravello as a "Città della musica".
The association of Wagner's name with Villa Rufolo, a place made splendid
and welcoming by the Scottish philanthropist Francis Neville Reid, was too
tempting not to suggest the idea of holding concerts at this site, blessed,
besides, by the great composer in person. Thus, in the 1930s the orchestra
of the San Carlo Theatre in Naples played a couple of times, with a
programme connected to Wagner.
