Jazz Festival 2013 in Barga (Lucca)

Barga Jazz Festival 2013 is entertained  in Barga, ( in Garfagnana area of Tuscany, province of Lucca). From August 17 to 31 the city of Barga is not only jazz music: there is an arrangement and composition game for jazz orchestra, concerts, masterclass, a contest denominated Barga Jazz and “enojazz” that  represents wine tastings accompanied by jazz music!

Edit in 1986, BargaJazz Festival arrives at XXVII edition and it should be the perfect opportunity to visit this delightful town situated between the Tusco-Appennine hills and the magnificent Apuan Alps. Barga exists from the early Middle Ages (VI-VIII centuries), it is surveied by a castle and defended by the city walls. Some steep and restricted streets lead up to the cathedral at the top of the hill, with beautiful panoramas over the town and surrounding valley.
