Incontri in Terra di Siena. La Foce

21-29 July. This festival was founded in memory of Iris Origo and her husband Antonio by their daughter Benedetta and grandson Antonio Lysy.

It is centred in the now immaculate estate which was nearly derelict when Iris and Antonio moved there in the 1920s, and which was immortalised in her book War in Val D'Orcia.

The programme is its usual high standard with excellent soloists, conductors and ensembles playing a mixed repertoire of well- and lesser-known music. Most of the concerts are in churches in the neighbourhood.

The concerts are often followed by dinner in nearby restaurants and there are also tours of La Foce gardens, surrounding museums and churches, as well as wine-tastings.
