The International Organ Music Festival has been a mainstay at the Sanctuary of La Verna since its inception in 1987.

Over the years, the festival has welcomed numerous renowned organists from around the world, such as Mario Ciferri and Alessandro Bianchi.

The monumental organ in the Basilica, where the concerts take place, was built in 1926 by the Tamburini company of Crema.

The organ was installed as a tribute to St. Francis, the founder of the Franciscan order, and as a way to elevate the sacred music played at the Sanctuary.

Today, the festival continues to honor this tradition by showcasing exceptional organ music in a truly unique and spiritual setting.
