Anima Mundi 2022

Anima Mundi returns this year from 9 to 24 September.
The 21st International Sacred Music Festival, organised by the Opera della Primaziale Pisana, will be held in the wonderful settings of the Cathedral and the Campo Santo in Pisa, just 25 km from our Grand Hotel Principe di Piemonte.
The 2022 festival offers seven concerts, each marked by a common spiritual dimension.
The Artistic Director is once again Trevor Pinnock, who will direct the renowned musicians, emerging soloists and some of the most acclaimed Italian and foreign ensembles performing at the festival.
