G. F. HAENDEL Suite in D maj.
G. TORELLI Concert in D maj. 

The Arrigoni Academy String Orchestra, a well-established regional ensemble, meets the great Spanish trumpeter in a program where we will appreciate Campos' virtuosity in some famous Baroque concertos and also the wonderful Holberg Suite by Grieg. A careful and meticulous connoisseur of European Romantic literature and a scholar of Wagner and Liszt's instrumental refinements, Grieg cannot be classified as an imitator of other styles or a follower of trends foreign to the spirit of Norwegian folklore. He was an excellent melodist with inexhaustible inventive taste, who took up ancient forms and transformed them with his inexhaustible melodic fantasy.

Parish Church of Santa Maria Annunziata di Castoia

Known by the toponym of Castoia, the parish church of Santa Maria Annunziata is one of the most beautiful in Carnia. Three religious buildings were built in this area: Santo Stefano (6th century), San Michele (7th century), and Santa Maria (9th-10th century). The oldest were destroyed after the earthquake of 1700, the most recent was transformed into the current parish church.

There are several masterpieces inside: the altarpiece of the Madonna of the Angels by the Carnic painter Nicola Grassi (1741, main altar); the baptistery with a 14th-century stone basin; and the wooden sculpture of Our Lady of the Assumption created by F. Demetz (1912). The old cemetery and the chapel, with frescoes by Gianfrancesco from Tolmezzo dating back to the end of the 15th century, should also be visited.
