A Supermoon in July and then a double full moon in August, but the show that everyone is waiting for is the night of San Lorenzo with the amazing astronomical event of the "shooting stars".


On the city walls of Lucca, music features the most romantic event of summer.

LE MURA DI LUCCA - infopoint


In the second century BC, the Romans founded the city of Lucca and surrounded it with a circle of walls, about 9 meters high and hinged at the corners by round towers. Four gates protected by proud lions were the exit of the cardo and decumanus maximus, which arose from the city forum, to head from the city towards the four cardinal points.



An old but very elegant coat made of heavy, dark cloth with the ever-present light silk scarf, a wide and long velvet dress with a high waist belt and a crown of ribbons and flowers to be placed on a head of soft curls, a princely gown made of silk tulle and embroidery of silver threads. For accessories, fibulas and bracelets with an ancient history. But where?



The Teatro del Giglio in Lucca is an "open theater”, always.

From 13 May from Tuesday to Saturday, from 11.00 am to 6.00 pm the doors of the Teatro del Giglio are open to welcome exhibitions, presentations, readings, short theatre and music performances, guided tours of the theater for citizens and guests.
