“Located in a hilltop medieval village in southern Tuscany, the Piccola Accademia di Montisi has been founded to provide a center of inspiration for musicians worldwide who have an interest in the harpsichord, its repertoire and its history.
The staff and trustees of the Piccola Accademia bring together significant experience in music, the broader arts, government, charitable foundation governance and business. We see our role as providing a platform from which teachers, students, performers and audiences can build an academy in Plato’s sense of that word, meaning a place for developing and exchanging an advanced philosophy—which in our case is the philosophy of historic musical performance. We will ensure that resources are gathered and managed appropriately, balancing the economic health and stewardship of the Piccola Accademia with providing access to the broader musical and local community.“
