The Volterra Project is an innovative experiment in classical guitar training offering a 360 degree formative course with highest level guitar master classes, music physiology training, and music business management seminars taught by experienced, internationally renowned professionals.

The mission of the Volterra Project is to help young guitarists develop well-rounded and non-competitive approaches to performing, to foster a generation of accomplished young guitarists who are prepared for the multiple aspects of performing careers, and to bring the guitar outside traditional performance venues into places of community access.

It is with great pleasure that I announce that, for the 8th time, we will meet again in the hills across from the medieval city of Volterra in Tuscany, Italy, for 8 more days of intense work and creative learning in one of the most enchanting and inspiring settings of the world!

This year's edition, “Women in Music”, will feature four women in the performing arts.

In addition to Antigoni Goni, we will host Gaëlle Solal as visiting artist and Guitar Master Class teacher, Clarice Assad with her unique seminar VOXploration, and the American businesswoman and multi instrumentalist Nana Simopoulos as the teacher of the "Business of Music" seminars.

As an exceptional addition, the Volterra Project is proud to present the Italian premiere of the one-hour documentary Sharon Isbin: Troubadour, the first full-scale documentary of Sharon Isbin.

The choice of the staff for this edition was not a neutral one: it has always been part of the Volterra Project's mission to promote different and wider perspectives on the guitar world and strengthen the elements of innovation in an ongoing effort to provide always renewed sources of inspiration to our students. An all female performers faculty, which, in addition to excellence in playing, developed innovative and creative approaches to artistic expression, will be a wonderful and unique source of inspiration for all our students, male and female alike.

Finally, in addition to the Physiology of Music course taught by the Dutch Alexander Technique expert Bonno Lange we are also happy to present a very innovative seminar: Video Analysis of music performance by Maurizio Villa, guitar professor at the Conservatory of S.Pietro a Majella of Naples, in which he will apply high-speed framerate sport video recording techniques to analyze the participants' guitar performance.
