Muse Salentine

Muse Salentine Artist Residency


Muse Salentine is a non-profit cultural association based in Alessano, Lecce. It organizes musical and cultural events to highlight some of the beautiful or historically interesting places in the Salento peninsula, located in the region of Puglia in Italy. Muse Salentine each year produces a series of concerts of classical music, mainly in the summer,. Events are deliberately kept small and informal, to create a strong link between the artists and the audience. For the 2018 edition, the inaugural project will be the artist residency.


The residency will take place in July in Alessano, and come to an end in an informal exhibition of work to coincide with the festival’s mid-summer concerts. Typically, these evening concerts are attended by an average of 100 guests at a time, and there will be three to four concerts scheduled for the first part of the festival, which generally sits on the end of July and start of August.
