Maria Vittoria Paci

The collaboration of "Momenti Creativi" of Maria Vittoria Paci with Maestro Attesti Francesco has led to the creation of a one month study holiday for American students in Monte S. Savino (Tuscany).

Momenti Creativi coordinated all the arrangements for this holiday, which included hotel accommodation and farmhouses for students and teachers, transportation, meals at local restaurants, special themed dinners and parties, as well as excursions upon request in Siena, San Gimignano, Florence, Perugia and Rome. It also planned and supervised the production of the set design used for the performances and organized the artistic aspects of the project, by provinding a historical building and the Municipal Theatre, where the teachers had their lessons.

Furthermore, we coordinated the orchestra with the conductor for the auditions and two public performances of well known operas: Puccini's Suor Angelica and Rossini's The Barber of Seville, where theatres and outdoor locations were made available in Monte S.Savino, Gargonza Castle, Castiglion Fiorentino and Cortona, which led to a significant public participation.

All took place in a collaborative environment with the satisfaction of reaching the project's set goals.

Cherubini” in Florence, and continued his studies at the “Sommerakademie Mozarteum” in Salzburg and Rome with Sergio Perticaroli, the “Gubbio Festival” with Jacques Rouvier, and in Florence with Hector Moreno. Mr. Attesti quickly distinguished himself, winning numerous prizes in many piano competitions. In 2003, 2004 and 2005, Attesti has been awarded a sponsorship for young talents from the “Ursula Ströher Stiftung” of Basel, Switzerland.

The public and critics alike have unanimously acclaimed Attesti as a great classical concert performer and a brilliant, refined interpreter of early music and the romantic repertoire.
