The Accademia Musicale Chigiana was founded in 1932 at the behest of Count Chigi Saracini, the patron and music lover who instituted master classes in music in Siena, offering hospitality in his own home to prestigious, world-famous teachers and to students coming from every continent. Thanks to its particular origins and the model of culture and of valuing and promoting music that it has represented in the past century and continues to represent, the Academy is internationally recognized still today as one of Italy’s most prestigious musical institutions.
