Amphitheater of the Crete Senesi

A unique event for the summer of 2024 in the Crete Senesi!

In the summer of 2023, the Asciano Suono Festival opened the extraordinary Crete Amphitheater to the public, a place that represents a new way of experiencing music: a total immersion in the nature of the Crete Senesi.

After the great success of the inauguration with a concert dedicated to Ennio Morricone, a new sunset event has been created this year: a grand appointment that fully respects the magnificent natural space. We are ready to welcome you back to enjoy this unique natural wonder and the celestial sounds that will envelop it!

Events at the Crete Amphitheater are not just about music, but about experiencing sound and sensation. From the moment you arrive, you are immersed in a half-hour walk through the Crete's nature to reach the concert venue. Everyone can enjoy the sunset stretching to the gates of Siena, sitting on the grass and sharing in a unique collective experience!

Alessandro Baricco in "ABEL CONCERT"

The great writer transforms his latest novel into a concert. "Asciano Suono Festival" hosts the ONLY SUMMER DATE of this unmissable event!

With his latest novel described as a “metaphysical western,” the great writer presents a true concert accompanied by three special musicians: Cesare Picco, Roberto Tarasco, and Nicola Tescari. Great literature is presented here in a real dialogue with the surrounding nature, evoking the concept of the vast prairies of the West.

Events at the Anfiteatro delle Crete are not just about music but also about the experience of sound and feeling, with attendees immersed from the moment they arrive, reaching the concert venue through a half-hour walk amidst the Crete's natural surroundings.

Alessandro Baricco in "ABEL CONCERTO"

The great writer transforms his latest novel into a concert, with live sounds by Cesare Picco, Roberto Tarasco, and Nicola Tescari. "Asciano Suono Festival" hosts the ONLY SUMMER DATE of this unmissable event.

"I felt like bringing Abel's sound to the stage. I imagined a band capable of turning those pages into a sound experience. What I can do and will do is read them, always seeking their sound before their meaning, and what I asked the three musicians to do is to carry my voice through a 90-minute soundscape. I chose them because I like their work, because I like them. I am sure they will take you where I want to go." - Alessandro Baricco
