Salle Outreach ProjectLanciano International Guitar Seminar is proud to introduce the Salle Outreach Project, an unique educational and cultural adventure into the exclusive world of the history of musical instrument string making. The event will be held on August 6 at the Museum of Strings and at the Castle of Salle.

The newly-founded Museum of Strings, Museo delle Corde Armoniche, tells the incredible history of some distinguished families that began their enterprises in their native Salle many hundreds of years ago, then exported their expertise and tradition abroad: among them the USA-based D'Addario and La Bella successful brands.
