Named for one of Italy’s internationally renowned baritones – Benvenuto Franci, the first two elimination rounds are held in the Sala Convegni E. Balducci of the San Carlo Borromeo Conservatory in Pienza.  For three days, the piazzas and streets will ring with the voices of over 100 young singers, infecting tourists and residents alike with their enthusiasm and infusing the Renaissance jewel and UNESCO heritage site of Pienza with their artistry. The final competition round, held in the Church of San Francesco, is presented as a free gala concert open to the public. The prestigious jury is led by Adua Veroni, a major figure in the opera world in Italy and an enthusiastic supporter of young lyric talent. Since it began, the Competition has welcomed over 300 singers from 21 different countries.
