THE VAL PUSTERIA

Located in "Alto Adige-Südtirol", Val Pusteria is a long and narrow valley that stretches between Bressanone and Lienz through the Eastern Alps, on the border between Italy and Austria. The largest center is Brunico; from here, along the valley to San Candido and Sesto, you enter a charming path where the picturesque Tyrolean towns alternate with fascinating natural sceneries.

For the 2017 edition, around 40 sites will be used, located in the twelve locations that, starting from Chienes, lead up to Sillian, in Austria.
The indoor performances will take place in all the main concert halls and churches in the valley.
Outdoor exhibitions will frame not only the most evocative natural landscapes of the region, such as the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, Lake Anterselva and all the Alpine refuges of Alta Pusteria, but also the courtyards of the medieval castles of Brunico and Monguelfo and the town squares of Villabassa, Valdaora and San Candido.
