Torre del Lago
Not long before his death in 1924, Puccini, who had settled in Torre del Lago on the Tuscan coast in 1891, expressed his desire to hear his operas in the amazing surroundings of the Massaciuccoli lake. Six years later, thanks to G. Forzano and P. Mascagni, the Puccini Festival was born and has become an institution paying annual tribute to the great composer.
