Siena has a rich calendar of events and appointments (over 600) in every season, often of extraordinary quality, like the summer music festivals and the great exhibitions. All this is made possible thanks to the commitment, the civic passion and the tradition of spending time together typical of the Sienese.
In Siena, handicrafts, gastronomy and wines also reach excellence and bring a message of culture and tradition.
For the updated calendar of events in the city we invite you to consult the following sites:
MICAT IN VERTICE
The winter Festival of the Accademia musicale Chigiana, includes concerts of great soloists, appointments with opera and contemporary novelties.
Exhibition of shows in the beautiful theatres of the city, the Teatro dei Rinnovati and the Teatro dei Rozzi.
CHIGIANA MUSICAL SUMMER
The Accademia musicale Chigiana Festival takes place in July in Siena and in some of the most evocative places of the territory, such as the Abbey of San Galgano, the Abbey of Sant’Antimo and the abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore, with concerts of the greatest international soloists.
Summer courses and concerts with great musicians, meetings in the districts and in the province with “Jazz…in Terre di Siena”.
SIENESE MUSIC WEEK
Called by the Accademia musicale Chigiana, it is a prestigious festival with homages to great international composers.
THE SCENTED CITY
Organized by the municipality of Siena, it is held the last week of August and takes you to Piazza del Campo and in the most evocative spaces of the city (from the Fontebranda Springs to Jacopo della Quercia Square) rock, author dance and music, through shows that see young musicians and already established artists perform on stage.
FILM FESTIVAL IN LANDS OF SIENA
Founded in 1996, focused on independent cinema, in the last four years it has chosen to focus on social, political and universal issues, such as infancy, the defence of the environment, human rights and peace.
Visionary is an international film festival directed by Mauro Tozzi, and is also the name of the association that promotes and organizes it. The festival includes, in addition to the competition, collateral events such as exhibitions, reviews, meetings, conferences and workshops. The goal is to give visibility to works by both independent and professional artists.
On 2nd July and 16th August, it is the most famous event to which the contrade of Siena give life. Other festivals articulate the Contradaiolo year, among which we mention the festivities of the patron saint and the festivities in which children are the protagonists, like the Festa of Tabernacoli and the Minimasgalano.
