On Friday evening 17th September at 9pm, you can enjoy a live concert at the Church of San Gaetano organized by the international piano festival "Bartolomeo Cristofori" – "Fight for Change – La natura del jazz" of Mirabassi/Zanisi.
The Piano Festival is a tribute to the innovative genius of Bartolomeo Cristofori, born in Padua on 4 May 1655, who was able to masterfully combine art and technology and "render on the instruments the talk of the heart, now with a delicate touch of an angel, now with a violent irruption of passions''. Cembalaro, organ builder and luthier, was one of the most famous harpsichord makers of his time. He is considered the inventor of the first piano models. Don’t miss it!
On Saturday afternoon 18th September, we close the conference while enjoying a virtual tour of the University of Padova, a presentation of Padova Urbs Picta, frescoes recently added to the UNESCO Heritage List and a short documentary on Padova historical places.
EALE - day 3 - YouTube (not available before 18-09-2021).
