Located in a hilltop medieval village in southern Tuscany, the Piccola Accademia di Montisi has been founded to provide a center of inspiration for musicians worldwide who have an interest in the harpsichord, its repertoire and its history.


Alan Curtis † (November 17, 1934 – July 15, 2015)

The Piccola Accademia di Montisi has sadly lost its Artistic Advisor, Alan Curtis, who died at his home in the hills above Florence this past Wednesday. Only the day before, Alan had sent warm greetings to everyone in Montisi via Ben Sosland, from the Juilliard School of Music, who had dined with Alan just hours before his death. Alan was a guiding light for the Accademia from its inception in 2006. He will be dearly missed.
