The Bosco che Suona

The Bosco che suona project involves musicians and visitors looking for an unforgettable experience.

In the Bosco che Suona in the Valmaggiore, one of the places where the percentage of spruce trees suited to making violins and pianos increases from 8 per thousand to 10 percent, a spruce tree was symbolically presented to Uto Ughi and to about twenty other great musicians including Mario Brunello, Daniel Hope, Marco Rizzi, Ezio Bosso, Ivry Gitlis and Uri Caine. Uto Ughi chose one that emits an F sharp when hit by the hand, almost like a xylophone.
Then, Marcello Mazzucchi, an iconic figure of the forest and a poet, cored the tree, establishing that it was 230 years old. A spruce tree is presented to a violinist, and to all musicians chosen by the Scario, the President of the Magnifica Comunità di Fiemme, which has been managing the collectively owned forests and pastures of the valley for 900 years. This tradition has continued throughout history: The Magnifica Comunità has always donated part of the proceeds from the sale of timber to socio-cultural activities.

In Predazzo, you can take a special audio guide and then tour the woods in search of trees, just a few dozen metres apart, named after musicians. A plaque attached to each tree thanks the musician for having made the trees in the woods resonate so well. The numbers on the audio guide correspond to a plaque so you can listen to a description of the tree by the forest poet and a presentation of the musician, followed by the musician playing a piece dedicated to the tree. This intimate and revitalising
experience in a unique location is intended for a few people who wish to be immersed in the silence of the woods and sublime music performed by great maestros. Only 20 audio guides are available because the musical wood is not suitable for crowds.
