The Ernico Simbruina Musical Association was founded in 1979 by a group of friends thoroughly committed to the Art of Music. One year later, in 1980, the Ernico Simbruina Musical Association established – thanks to the generous support provided by the Cassa Rurale di Affile and Banca di Anagni- the first “Festival Simbruino” which held its first concerts in Affile and Arcinazzo Plateau. Following its expansion to the towns of Anagni, Fiuggi and Monte San Giovanni Campano, the Festival was named ” Festival delle Città Medievali (Festival of the Medieval Cities)” The friendship of the leading founder and artistic director Vincenzo Mariozzi with internationally renowned musicians has given the opportunity to admire important artists such as Dino Asciolla, Giuseppe Selmi, Franco Mannino, Daniele Paris, chamber ensembles such as the “Beethoven”, the “Borodin” and the “Academica ” string quartets, soloists such as Katia Ricciarelli, Cecilia Gasdia, Renato Bruson, Anna Caterina Antonacci, Salvatore Accardo, Uto Ughi, Giuliano Carmignola, Vladimir Spivakov, Pavel Vernikov, Sergio Fiorentino, Maria Tipo, Aldo Ciccolini, Michele Campanella, Costantin Bogino, Severino Gazzelloni, Angelo Persichilli, Mario Ancillotti, Bruno Cavallo, Marco Costantini, Rino Vernizzi, Fabrizio Meloni, Gui Tuvron, Luciano Giuliani, Guelfo Nalli. Over the years, many internationally renowned orchestras and chamber groups have participated in the Festival. Among the most important: “I Musici”, i Solisti Veneti, Moscow Virtuosi, the Prague Chamber Orchestra, Kammer Orchestra SWD Germanic Festival orchestra, Bergamo and Brescia, Munchener Bach Orchestra, the Chamber Orchestra of Santa Cecilia, i Solisti della Scala di Milano, orchestra da camera di Mantova, Orchestra Internazionale of Italy, the Orchestra Regionale Toscana and the orchestra di Roma e del Lazio. Today, after more than 30 years, the Ernico Simbruina Musical Association and its “Festival of the Medieval Cities” still continues with renewed commitment to provide the Fiuggiarea with exceptional musical events.
