- The Festival della Valle d’Itria in Martina Franca began in 1975 as an initiative of a group of passionate music lovers headed by Alessandro Caroli, the Festival’s first president, determinedly supported by Franco Punzi – then mayor of Martina Franca – and Paolo Grassi, who was then superintendent at the Teatro alla Scala.
- From the outset, the festival stood out for its bold programming of a repertoire and a performance style which were then undervalued.
