There is a close connection between music and the Marche, the region of which Ascoli Piceno is a prominent city.
There are several academies of music, theatres and concert halls in the Marche region. Rossini, Spontini and Pergolesi composed their masterpieces in this region and the tradition repeats itself every time that the “Rossini Opera Festival” in Pesaro, the “Sferisterio” opera house in Macerata or the “Ventidio Basso” theatre in Ascoli present their programmes.
The Ascoli Piceno Festival is one of the most interesting events and takes place every year in September.
All month long, the theatres, cloisters and squares of the town provide the rich and wonderful setting for dozens of concerts of all genres.
Theatres and cinemas
Throughout the year theatres in Ascoli, San Benedetto del Tronto and other towns of the province offer ballets, shows in prose and cabarets.
The school informs its students about the show programmes and also advises them on the films available, giving them the opprtunity to choose the most appropriate, according to preference and level of language skill.
