It's an experience of early music with a difference. We invite you to join us on a journey of discovery of music hundreds of years old, some rarely hear and some vaguely familiar perhaps. But it’s all fresh, honest and on the edge of the possibilities. Every concert is carefully curated and carries a story of it’s own: musicians are hand-picked, as is the food menu for each concert…food plays a very important role!  We cook real home-made meals for all our musicians and we make it available our audiences as well. Our home is in an active church who are very much a part of the festival, and help us realise our feastival of early music and food.

Born and raised in the historic city of Arezzo, Italy, Nicola possesses an unquenchable thirst for finding new 'old' music, be it digging through old manuscripts and bookshops to find old scores from which he can make parts or make an arrangement. Still has a CD collection.
