The Municipality of Saronno promotes, together with Giuditta Pasta Cultural Foundation and CulturalMente & MusicalMente Association, a great international cultural event.

On May the city of Saronno will host the SARONNO INTERNATIONAL LYRIC COMPETITION, in honour of Giuditta Pasta, a famous singer and lyrical interpreter, to whom the theater is dedicated.

The jury will be of internal celebrity and will select the best singers through a preliminary round and a semi-final.

The final will be performed as a symphonic lyric concert with the participation of Orchestra Lake Como Philarmoniker.

For the winners, there will be a total prize of € 8000; concerts and opera productions are also planned for important European theaters.

The International Lyric Competition, in honour of Giuditta Pasta, was born as a challenge, from the ambitious idea of ​​combining cultural and artistic aims to the creation and development of the image of Saronno city which gave birth to this great lyric interpreter.

The purpose is creating a project that every two years can grow, giving life to a cultural center on our territory.

The reasons that led us to present this project are:

  • create an important cultural event that can encourage and enhance young talents from various cultures and ethnic backgrounds;
  • give homage to an important “Saronnese” citizen, who was able to impose herself on the world’s attention of 1800 for artistic merit, to which the Theater was also given; (??)
  • promote collateral events such as exhibitions, conferences and workshops for people with disabilities;
  • promote the image of Saronno city and of the Public Administration that supports the project, through an international showcase;
  • create an important resource for hotels, clubs and partners in the project, that allows (what?) during the week concerned and not only;
  • live up the town, affecting both day and night bands of the public;
  • involve other associations in the partnership during the dedicated week, to allow each of them, with their own know-how, to contribute to the collateral events (that will develop as a corollary of the central event).
