11 Lune Festival in Peccioli: music, theatre and events

The festival

Every summer since 2005, the Peccioliper Foundation has organised the 11 Lune (11 moons) Festival, bringing a variety of musical, theatrical and other events to the Fonte Mazzola Amphitheatre throughout the month of July. The amphitheatre is constructed entirely of eco-friendly materials using the most advanced green building techniques and is inspired by a philosophy of maximum respect for the environment.

The festival is designed to be in total harmony with the surrounding landscape and the staging gives the audience a clear view of the surrounding hills.
