The Alba Jazz festival 2012

With summer fast approaching, Italy prepares itself for the various outdoor music festivals which are such a highlight of the year.

In Alba we kick off with the Alba Jazz festival that takes place between 7/10 June. The concerts will be held in some of Alba’s most beautiful Piazze (squares). Artists include, Luca Mannutza,Lorenzo Tucci,Paolo Fresu and Hamish Stuart.

My favorite is the Monforte Jazz festival held in July in the historic centre of Monforte d’Alba near Barolo. The concerts are held over a period of a week or so in a small  amphitheater. We usually start off we diner in the main Piazza and head off toward the concert. It’s such a great atmosphere that words can’t really describe.

At the moment we are still waiting for the line up of the Monforte festival, I’m really looking forward to it. I’ll keep you posted.
