    When Sem Benelli named the bay on which Lerici lies “The Gulf of Poets”, he emphasised its story - from Lord Byron to DH Lawrence, from George Sand to the Shelleys who lived in Villa Magni (San Terenzo) - and he described the reasons why many artists and intellectuals, before and after them, chose this place to live part of their lives: a place for the soul and creativity.

     

    It is the place to be inherently poetic: the light, the silence, the landscape, the rhythm of life, the relationship between sea and mountains, the climate and the sweetness of life that lead us to look at life with depth, affection and disenchantment at the very moment when one loves and sings it.

     

    Here, Music has a natural place that exalts it, like a sounding board for the soul and beauty.

     

    Suoni dal Golfo Festival stems from this story and draws its inspiration from that cultural humus...
