The Pusterla 1880 group sponsored the 11th edition of the “Arturo Toscanini” competition for conductors, the final of which was held on Saturday 23 October in the form of a concert open to the public, at the Teatro Regio in Parma.

In order to allow the 12 young directors selected among the nearly 240 candidates from 45 different countries of the world, to be able to count on a knowledge base of the lowest common denominator, “La Toscanini” last May, has organized two weeks of intense workshops around and inside the world of Italian Opera, starting from the study of our language and the impact it has on the musical text. This full immersion in melodrama was amplified by an exciting journey through the Italian spirit: art, history, territory, fashion, design, cuisine … because the Italian Opera is a total immersive experience.

“We believe that this project was an excellent opportunity to remind us how much our territory has to offer in terms of the culture of quality and beauty. Pusterla 1880, as a group at the service of producers of luxury goods, knows that choosing quality is the sustainability of our territories is the right choice to give value to our work. Precisely for this reason it was an honor for us to sponsor a wind of this magnitude and thus help the professional and personal growth of a new young director of orchestra.”
