The festival promoted by Salvi Harps and Lyon & Healy in Italy crosses national borders and moves to France, Germany, Romania, Bulgaria and Belgium in 2019.

The formula is the same: a whole weekend of music designed to offer a different learning experience for harp students, including interaction with an internationally renowned artist(s) through masterclasses and concerts, an exhibition of Salvi and Lyon & Healy harps and a musical marathon in which students have the opportunity to perform in a concert setting and develop their stage skills.
Harpissima also offers the general public the opportunity to meet the world of the harp in a unique setting, at its highest level. All Harpissima events are free (or minimal cost) to attend, but registration is required.
