The ancient castle of Cucagna, philologically recovered without affecting its historical authenticity and without introducing modern construction elements, serves as the setting for unique cultural events, welcoming spectators in a highly suggestive and uncontaminated environment.
the Institute organizes cultural events on musical, instrumental, culinary and chivalry traditions of the medieval and Renaissance periods.
Research on medieval culture is mainly based on iconographic written or illustrated sources, but much is still undetermined.
For example we have scores testifying music of that period, but little is known about the execution and interpretation leaving plenty of room for improvisation of the musician. The musical instruments are known to us only through paintings of the XII/XIII century. Research in this field is a continuous experimental workshop, always open to new solutions and to new interpretations.
