“Teatri di Pietra” is the Montecrestese arts festival. Inaugurated in 2015 and edited by the Canova Association on the initiative of the Montecrestese Town Council it promises visitors an array of events related to the world of show business, featuring both live performances and visual arts. The magnificent traditional architecture of the historic villages of Naviledo and Alteno becomes a spectacular backdrop for dance performances, shows, installations and photography exhibitions.
The event features endless shows, themed staging and art exhibitions nestled amongst the vineyards and meadows surrounding the Montecrestese hamlets. To reach the various activities, visitors can hop on the shuttle bus provided or take the scenic route along the old mule tracks.
The road that links Naviledo and Alteno in Montecrestese also showcases food and wine from the farms and craftsmen from this part of the Ossola Valley. “Teatri di Pietra” is one of the most original events in the area, combining exciting shows and visits to villages steeped in tradition and rural life.
