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

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.

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.

The Giuseppe Martucci International Prize intends to address the younger generations, promoting the deepening of the musician Martucci and an important period in the Music, leaving competitors with ample freedom of choice in proposing a program that can best characterize their musical personality.


This formula favors the artistic awareness of the invited competitors to fully express their resources and their inclinations, having the opportunity to present pieces of great artistic caliber and even their own compositions and improvisations.


The finalists, identified without a ranking order, are in fact the winners of the competition: among these the overall winner will be the one who will be able to win even the approval of the public in the winning concert of the finalists.


The Giuseppe Martucci International Award is currently the relevant piano prize of the city of Novara: thanks to the Municipality of Novara for the support given to the Associazione Amici della Musica V.Cocito, organizer of the Competition. The precious collaboration of the Centro Studi Martucciani onlus and of the Conservatory "Guido Cantelli" is also attested.
