inside Cremona Musica International Exhibitions and Festival – CREMONA FAIR

23rd-24th-25th September  2022

In the exhibition complex of Cremona, inside Cremona Musica International Exhibitions and Festival, from September 23rd to September 25th 2022, the ACOUSTIC GUITAR VILLAGE will offer a packed schedule of concerts and events, as well as the extensive exhibition of acoustic classical and modern guitars, other plectrum and plucked instruments and accessories.

Cremona Musica International Exhibitons is the world’s most important event regarding high-level handicraft musical instruments, and it’s the most effective marketplace in the world for contemporary lutherie: a place where artistic and musical culture find an ideal stage to express themselves.
The guitar will have then its dedicated exhibit area, one of great importance and visibility considering its location, at the entrance of the Mondomusica pavilion; a village with the presence of national and international luthiers, small and big companies and distributors of the most prestigious brands, accessories and publishing. Guitar associations, luthiers associations and unions, and formative institutes and schools will also participate in the event.

Our Association, under the coordination of Alessio Ambrosi, will be curating the artistic and organizational direction, guaranteeing as always the utmost professionalism and competence.
True to the successful format of the years in Sarzana (1998-2015), the event will present several concerts and events, right now in the planning process, on the various stages and dedicated areas. The program will include:

Masterclasses of lutherie and didactic techniques for acoustic guitar
Contest “NEW SOUNDS OF ACOUSTIC MUSIC”  for acoustic guitarists and emerging acoustic ensemble/bands
