In the ancient capital of the kingdom of the Lombards, Spoleto, each year a fantastic international event takes place: Il Festival dei 2 Mondi, literally “festival of 2 worlds”, which are the European and the American ones.
The aim of the festival is to bring together these two worlds with their different cultures and arts, creating something really unique.
From the last week of June to mid-July, there are great shows, plays, art exhibitions and lots more. In fact, the festival has an extensive programme with national and international renowned artists.
Art, culture, dance and music are the common thread of the festival.
This amazing Umbrian town represents a great stepping stone for young artists’ who participate in the festival competitions.
Spoleto is a wonderful background with its theaters, Teatro Nuovo and Caio Melisso and the open-air Roman theater, the suggestive tower bridge, ponte delle torri, the majestic fortress, Rocca Albornoziana, located in a dominant position on the Saint Elia hill.
The festival is a way to discover this part of Umbria, while enjoying this special atmosphere. A must-do if you’re in the area!
