The venues of ELNT are characterized by a special connection with the life and / or work of the composer. In 2018 the ELNT will stop, for the first time, in Italy, in Lake Como, vis-à -vis in Bellagio, where Liszt together with her lover, the Countess Marie d’Agoult, had spent a few months in 1837.
At that time he devoted himself to the reading of the Divine Comedy, a source of inspiration for his homonymous symphonic poem and finally in December ’37 the daughter Cosima Francesca Gaetana was born on Lake Como.
