Since 2005 the Competition has organized an important chamber music festival. To celebrate the tenth edition of the competition (2005), the concert season "LA GRANDE MUSICA IN LUOGHI D'ARTE" has been organized, featuring the winners of the competition and some illustrious concertists hosted in the most important art places of Province of Verona. From 25th August, the prize-winners of the “Salieri-Zinetti” Inter national Competition, one of the most prestigious chamber music contests in Italy, appear in concert in the 2017 season of “Great Music in Places of Art, Nature and Taste”. These events take place in some of the most significant spots of the Veneto Region, creating an unforgettable atmosphere. The events propose a guided visit to the hosting place, a tasting of typical products of the area and finally the concert: three important moments to which the greatest care and attention is paid. This series is promoted by the “Gaetano Zinetti” Cultural Association, in cooperation with the Town Halls of the hosting municipalities; the Festival is supported by the Cattolica Assicurazioni Foundation, Masi Foundation, CereaBanca 1897, Federmanager and Trentin spa. The gastronomic aspect involves leading Wine Companies and Roads of Taste in the hosting territory.
