Piano Lab 2018

Matina Franca, Puglia, Italy. Sunday 12-August-2018.

A lovely evening of piano music in Martina Franca at 15 locations around the town in piazzas, parks and churches and with a schedule of different players. Called Piano Lab, it is a two-day event where you can wander around the town and hear an array of piano music from classical to jazz. And it's all free!

In the Piazza Plebiscito in front of the Basilica di San Martino:

Chiesa San Domenico:

The lovely Piazza Maria Immacolata:

Piazza XX Septembre:

Each stage has a packed list of performers. You can listen to as much or as little as you wish and wander on at will. When you return to the same stage there will be someone different.

We ended up eating late, at about quarter to midnight. None of this typical English rubbish of "It's 10 o'clock, the chef's gone home"; restaurants are serving while there are customers to be fed.

Definitely on our list to repeat next year.
