From art films to romantic comedies, from historical films to entertainment movies, Lucca and its surroundings have appeared many times on the big screen, as a protagonist or simply in the background.

The historic center of Lucca and its narrow alleys, the Renaissance palaces and the mighty walls, the magnificent historic villas, the gardens and the hills, the landscape, its atmosphere of a small capital, full of charm and romantic suggestions, have made of the city and the hills an ideal set for many films.

Les Voyageurs - The travelers

Pierre David, J4 and Khadine are three of ten seductive sculptures touring the world and that are now for a month in our city. Some faces seem neutral, others convey nostalgia, others the joy of landing. The location of the statues, the first next to casermetta San Regolo, the second and third a few meters away near the headquarters of the Lucchesi nel Mondo Association, is a kind of homage to the many people of Lucca who over the decades have gone to distant lands in search of fortune and becoming an important reference in the communities abroad.

LUCCA IN SEPTEMBER

 

In 742 a mysterious dark crucifix arrived in Lucca, on a cart pulled by indomitable oxen after having crossed the Mediterranean sea on an unmanned boat.

NESSUN DORMA, LUCCA WHITE NIGHT

A program for visitors of all ages, on August 27, for the white night in the old town center of Lucca.

Extraordinary openings of museums, guided tours, initiatives for children and families, dancing performances in the squares, music, concerts, special events with the highlight at midnight in Piazza San Martino, but also shops and restaurants open until late night and DJ sets in the clubs.

E LUCEVAN LE STELLE

 

Along the city walls and on the towers of Lucca, a nose-up walk to catch a glimpse of a shooting star in some patch of sky, among the foliage of the trees.
It is the night of San Lorenzo, the night of wishes and Lucca dedicates it to the famous aria from Tosca "The Stars Were Brightly Shining" accompanying you on this night walk with music and stories, in an ideal route from the Civic Towers to the City Walls.

Hope is the theme of the 2022 edition of Lucca Comics & Games.

The godfather of imaginative realism Ted Nasmith, a great artist who has given shape to the visual universe of Middle-earth in the last forty years, is the author of the poster.

And with the 2022 poster, two monuments plus two join the pop iconography of the city and our dedicated journey.

In the sixteenth-century church of San Paolino and Donato, a large painting tells the story of the miracle of San Paolino.

In the year 1664, the day of the patron saint celebrations of Lucca, cannons were fired, but that day, the cannons were not loaded with blanks as expected, but they fired on the crowd! Only the miraculous intervention of the saint saved people gathered around the city walls.

PUCCINI IN SUMMER

There is an opera season for each season of the year.

In Lucca in the summer period there are two opportunities to appreciate his works: the Puccini festival, in the Gran Teatro Puccini in Torre del Lago, right in front of the house where the Maestro lived for a long time and composed many of his immortal arias and the Cartoline Pucciniane festival, in Lucca, right in front of the house where he was born in 1858.
