Festival till 1996

Das Festival begann seine Geschichte mit einer wöchentlichen Konzertreihe im Mai im Stadttheater Puccini, wechselte mit der Jahrtausendwende aber ins Freie und in die Sommermonate. Als Übergangslösung kehrte es 2006 wieder in den Kursaal und das Stadttheater zurück. Seit der Ausgabe 2010 findet es im suggestiven Garten von Schloss Kallmünz statt, einem einzigartigen Edelsitz aus dem späten Mittelalter im Stadtkern von Meran.

Il festival è nato da una rassegna di concerti svoltasi inizialmente nel maggio presso il Teatro Puccini. Dall’inizio del nuovo millennio si è sempre svolto all’aperto durante i mesi estivi, con una parentesi tra 2006 e il 2009, anni nei auali è stato nuovamente ospitato negli spazi del Teatro Puccini e del Kursaal. Dall’edizione 2010 la rassegna ha luogo nella suggestiva cornice del giardino di Castel Kallmünz, antica e prestigiosa residenza nobiliare d’epoca tardo-medievale nel centro storico di Merano.
