This year will be the 57th edition of the Spoleto Festival dei Due Mondi. Giancarlo Menotti founded this international festival. He was born on July 7, 1911 in Cadegliano Italy. When his father died, he moved with his mother to the USA. Although he referred to himself as an American composer, he has always kept his Italian citizenship.
When his mother turned back to Italy, Menotti decided to stay in America. After his study in Philadelphia at the Curtis institute of Music, he created a life in NY together with his partner Barber. He wrote several librettos, operas and ballets. He was an opera composer and a poet. His popularity is still as great in Europe as it is in America. He died on February 1, 2007.
“Art is a form of love, I like writing, and I hope people will except it and love it”
