The Association "Amici della Musica Vittorio Cocito" promotes the ninth edition of the International Prize Giuseppe Martucci.

The Prize was founded in 2015, with the support of the late M° Folco Perrino, a keen scholar of the human and artistic figure of Martucci, with the aim of spreading the knowledge of the great Italian musician.

This competition aims to address the younger generations, promoting knowledge of an important period of musical art and of the figure the musician Martucci, while leaving candidates wide freedom of choice in proposing a program that can best characterize their musical personality.

This formula promotes the awareness of the competitors invited to fully express their resources and inclinations, offering pieces of great artistic level and even their own compositions and improvisations.

The finalists, identified by a technical jury without a ranking order, are in fact the winners of the competition, among which the absolute winner will be the one who manages to gain public approval.

Among the peculiar characteristics of the "Amici della Musica Vittorio Cocito" Association, we highlight the constant sensitivity towards the new generations and at the same time the work of spreading the musical culture.

Thanks to the Conservatorio "Guido Cantelli" of Novara for the valuable collaboration.

The Giuseppe Martucci International Award is also supported by AIARP as technical partner.
