Now in its 65th year, the Ravello Festival has retained its original character and international fame. It is a historical meeting place for diverse cultures, offers a raft of excellence with its great artists as well as emerging talents, and is the promoter of new creations. This has assured its attraction to institutions, artists, operators, companies and media and it has become an event known all over the world, an event not to miss.

The Ravello Festival has the support of those who have a strong belief in tourism and the cultural growth of one of the most suggestive and fascinating places on earth. At national and international level, the Ravello Festival is one of the most important cultural events, a meeting place for the originality and in many ways exclusiveness of its performances. The Festival hosts great prominent as well as emerging artists, and above all is a workshop of original productions. Ravello is a fascinating place where every summer the great performance arts of opera, music, jazz and dance come together from every part of the world.

Il Ravello Festival, infatti, da sempre ha cercato di proporre novità e spettacoli all’avanguardia, ma anche di rispettare la tradizione classica. E con le sue bellezze paesaggistiche, la perla della Costiera Amalfitana contribuisce a creare un dualismo tra arte antica ed arte contemporanea, unico nel suo genere, per un turismo di qualità.

This year too is an occasion for the avant-garde and traditional, the revolutionary and the classical, artists of the new generations and the old to come together, all of them continuing their tradition of quality and excellence of their performances, a panorama of vital and interesting artistic expression from stages all over the world. The Ravello Festival has always done its best, in fact, to offer innovation and the avant-garde, while respecting classical traditions. And this jewel of the Amalfi Coast, with its breath-taking views, contributes to the creation of a dualism between the old and the contemporary which is unique of its kind, quality tourism.
