The vast majority of Puccini's heroines have specific traits that distinguish them. Among all these women, however, one stands out as pivotal in Puccini's life: Elvira Bonturi. Everything begins, happens, and concludes around the Divine Elvira. A concert featuring the most famous arias by Giacomo Puccini such as "Sì, mi chiamano Mimì" from La bohème, "Vissi d'arte" from Tosca, and "Un bel dì, vedremo" from Madama Butterfly. The duo, formed by the Pollice brothers, has performed concerts throughout Europe, including in the piano duo formation as soloists with prestigious orchestras such as the Sofia and Zagreb Soloists, and the Russian Chamber Orchestra. Recently, they have distinguished themselves in productions where they address specific musical themes, presenting them to the public with remarkable affability.

Carnic Museum "Michele Gortani"

The Carnic Museum of Folk Arts "Michele Gortani" of Tolmezzo, housed in the seventeenth-century Palazzo Campeis, displays a rich collection of ethnographic, artistic and artisanal objects that embrace all aspects of Carnic life and traditions from the 14th to the 19th centuries. The exhibition path unwinds through 30 rooms, which reconstruct the home and working environments: the kitchen, the bedrooms, the small dining room, the brazier, weaver and carpenter's workshops.

Specific sections dedicated to traditional crafts, wrought iron, weights and measures, folk dress, weaving, embroidery, and laces can also be seen. You can also admire a rich collection of portraits, a room entirely dedicated to folk religion, a rich collection of masks and a valuable collection of musical instruments. With so many objects on display, the Museum “Michele Gortani” is one of Europe's most important ethnographic museums; it is part of the CarniaMusei network.
