Dear Friends of the Festival,
from this year the International Guitar Festival - Città di Mottola will no longer take place. This decision is the result of a long evaluation and of the will to leave an indelible mark which, we hope, you'll all keep among your dearest things.
In recent years, we have had the pleasure and honor of hosting artists of the highest level with unforgettable concerts, offering concrete possibilities to young guitarists through competitions and scholarships (and we have also seen many of them grow and establish themselves professionally and musically). 
From each edition in these three decades, we keep faces and emotions. And so, thank you. Thanks first of all to the audience who followed us with great participation and thanks to the nationally and world-renowned artists who have always chosen us. 
Thanks to the institutions and to the many organizations that, at various levels, have always ensured their support. And thanks again to all the staff for putting their effort and enthusiasm into it.
After reaching the milestone of 30 years of the Festival, we think it is right to stop. It's time to say goodbye, it will always be time for memories that we'll carry in our hearts.
Michele Libraro / Artistic Director





A touring way full of guitar concerts or ensemble with guitar

Thanks to this format of musical offer, the listener will can choice soloist, group or musical genre to his liking.

The natural disposition of the so-called "Schiavonia", i.e. the Medieval Centre of Mottola, with its little squares, spaces obtained from the position of the whitewash houses, gives to the Festival the ideal frame for the achievement of "Serenate".

There are well 5 musical places, in each place will perform 2 musical groups that will play their own musical plans alternating themselves for 40 minutes.
