The Puccini Festival has been an annual event since since 1954, the place
where the musical composer Giacomo Puccini spent most of his life in
Torre del Lago. This small and pretty town is located between Lake
Massaciuccoli and the Tyrrhenian Sea, in the municipality of Viareggio,
on the Tuscan coast, approximately 18 km from Lucca and Pisa. Each year
the Festival welcomes 40,000 people in its recently renewed open-air
theater. It is an intense and unique experience. The theatre is
surrounded by the lake and the moon. A short walk from the wood and the
Villa Mausoleo, where Giacomo Puccini lived and worked. The lake and its
surroundings were strongly loved by Puccini, who used to find peace
here, sharing also his life whit the villagers and the community of
