entrata-agv_1In the exhibition complex of Cremona, inside Cremona Musica International Exhibitions and Festival, from September 28th to September 30th 2018, the ACOUSTIC GUITAR VILLAGE will offer a packed schedule of concerts and events, as well as the extensive exhibition of acoustic, classical and modern guitars and accessories.


Cremona Musica International Exhibitons is the world’s most important event regarding high-level handicraft musical instruments, and it’s the most effective marketplace in the world for contemporary lutherie: a place where artistic and musical culture find an ideal stage to express themselves.
The guitar will have then its dedicated exhibit area, one of great importance and visibility considering its location, at the entrance of the Mondomusica pavilion; a village with the presence of national and international luthiers, small and big companies and distributors of the most prestigious brands, accessories and publishing. Guitar associations, luthiers associations and unions, and formative institutes and schools will also participate in the event.

Our Association, under the coordination of Alessio Ambrosi, will be curating the artistic and organizational direction, guaranteeing as always the utmost professionalism and competence.
True to the successful format of the years in Sarzana, the event will present several concerts and events, right now in the planning process, on the various stages and dedicated areas. The program will include:

Masterclass of lutherie and didactic masterclass of acoustic guitar
Contest “NEW SOUNDS OF ACOUSTIC MUSIC”  for acoustic guitarists, guitar-songwriters and emerging acoustic ensemble/bands
– STRINGS & VOICES D’AUTORE, in the memory of Stefano Rosso
Concerts with international artists
Historical Exhibitions
Conferences, workshops, meetings
Demos and showcases

The complete program is on the pages of this website and on

Dear friends,
the Acoustic Guitar Village inside Cremona Musica International Exhibitions has just ended and we are very happy with the results obtained! More than 17.000 people have attended the Cremona Musica and all of them have visited the AGV, which enriched the all event with about 200 musicians in the various performances on the stages and with 900 sqm of guitar exhibition area. The best luthiers, brands and companies were present, Italians and from all over the world.











The opening Gala Concert in the wonderful Teatro Ponchielli of Cremona has been the right aperitif of an increasingly important event in the field of international music fairs. Great success and beautiful performances of the NYC songwriter Diane Ponzio, of the acrobatic guitarist Finaz and of the well known virtuoso international duo Tuck & Patti. We will all remember the concert for a long time!
