Cristiana Pegoraro – President of Narnia Arts Academy

The Narnia Arts Academy is the brainchild of Cristiana Pegoraro whose goal is to mix music, art, education and tourism, by uniting culture and geography in an innovative interdisciplinary initiative aimed at the dissemination and comprehension of the arts and understanding of the cultural, architectural and historical heritage of the Umbrian region.

Narnia Arts Academy runs a very intense activity in the schools, embracing from the elementary to the high schools.

The various outreach programs take place directly in the schools and include an active student participation at the different projects, aimed to increase their comprehension and appreciation of classical music.

Narnia Arts Academy school projects take place during the winter and spring months, generally from February to May.

In July, withing the Narnia Festival, Narnia Arts Academy embraces a great variety of training proposals of the highest quality, featuring teachers from the most important international schools and universities (including The Juilliard School in New York, Mozarteum – Salzburg, the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow, Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst – Vienna, University of Miami, Accademia del Teatro alla Scala, Conservatorio di Santa Cecilia) and a participation of over 300 young students each season.
