Guido Day – Music Festival

and International Prize “Guido d’Arezzo”

On June 21 each year, the day of the summer solstice, when many cities in Italy and Europe celebrate the “Festival of Music,” Arezzo pays homage to its great fellow citizen, Guido d’Arezzo, with a day entirely dedicated to him.
The event, desired by the Foundation and held in several of the city’s most characteristic places (squares, churches, theater), is attended by local musical institutions and both vocal and instrumental groups from different parts of Italy and Europe.
On the same day, the Foundation, in the presence of the Authorities, awards the “Guido d’Arezzo” prize to personalities and institutions that have earned special merits in the field of music and the promotion of musical culture.
