Under construction. Come back soon.

AmiCa (Associazione musicale internazionale del Calatino), was founded in September 2010 due to a vital urge to spread musical culture in Sicily, in particular in the so-called Calatino: a breathtaking area that can be the perfect frame for the high-profile artistic activity that we propose. 

AmiCaFest is a varied reality that embraces additional activities such as exhibitions, book presentations, cultural classes, etc. AmiCaFest places the student in a full-Sicilian-immersion environment, surrounded by a total experience of everyday life, from the lodging to the authenticity of worldwide-loved food. The spirit of AmiCaFest is to provide international students with an unforgettable experience, through many opportunities, including piano lessons and masterclasses with renowned artists, and the chance to perform with the Bellini Symphony Orchestra at the Teatro Massimo Vincenzo Bellini in Catania, the historical Opera House named after the composer Vincenzo Bellini. The theater, which seats 1,200, was inaugurated on May 31, 1890 with a performance of the composer’s masterwork, Norma.
