There are challenges that are destined to change the history of a small village and become an emblem of tenacity and resourcefulness. It is well known in Monforte d'Alba, where in 1976 some young people decided to organise the first concert (which would become the first edition of Monfortinjazz) in a place that had been neglected for a long time, up there on top of the village in that natural cavea located between the ancient bell tower, the oratory of St. Augustine and the walls of Scarampi Castle with the oratory of St. Elisabeth.

Being a bit visionary, and a bit cheeky, they managed to involve in their project a young, but already successful, Francesco Guccini: just a little money, a few bottles of good wine and the joy of sharing a dream, this was the agreed fee. This marked the official start of a long journey that has brought the biggest names in international music to Monforte, and ten years later the grassy slope was to become the Horszowsky Auditorium, in honour of the great Russian pianist who inaugurated it with a concert in 1986. The venue has perfect acoustics and artists from all over the world have accepted the invitation to perform. All you have to do is follow the notes on the programme and let yourself be embraced by the sound and landscape harmonies of Monforte d'Alba.
