A vivid memory, a dream that goes on

The Luciano Pavarotti Foundation is a non-profit organisation with a double goal: to keep alive the human and artistic memory of Maestro Pavarotti through major international events and to support promising young opera singers.

Maestro used his great talent to bring opera to a worldwide audience of millions. Larger-than-life in many different ways, his spectacular voice – combined with his disarming charisma – touched the hearts of many, and his generosity had no limits. His achievements placed him in the Olympus of artists, but the most significant legacy he left us is the importance of promoting music, art and culture to build a better world and the duty to share passion, knowledge and talent with others.

Helping young singers to shape their future was a goal that Maestro Pavarotti cultivated throughout his life and today the Foundation works to realise his same dream, offering opportunities and visibility to up-and-coming young opera singers, while also seeking to make the access to studies and training accessible to all.

“I want to reach as many people as possible with the message of music, of marvellous opera”

Our mission:

A vivid memory

Great concerts and exhibitions all over the world, a Home Museum in his city

To keep alive the memory of one of the most beloved artists of our time, the Foundation organizes events all over the world and has opened the doors of Maestro’s home in his hometown.

The concerts organised by the Foundation bring the most illustrious opera stars together on the same stage with young opera singers or sometimes even with the most acclaimed pop voices to create memorable contaminations in the name of music with no barriers.

The exhibitions present Luciano Pavarotti as the artist and the man he was, in order to pay tribute to his iconic profile, to his unparalleled performance and also to his charisma and extraordinary humanity.

The visit to the Modena Home-Huseum, Maestro’s last dwelling, allows to discover Pavarotti in the most intimate and warm light of his rooms, approaching his memory while admiring his personal objects, knowing his daily habits, discovering the family man hidden under the great artist.

Our mission:

A dream that goes on

Young talents represent the heart of Foundation’s mission. Perhaps not many people know that Maestro Pavarotti gave free singing lessons to many students he considered promising. He loved teaching, he used to say that sharing his experience and passion with young people was his way of thanking for the great gift he received, namely his voice; it was also a way of perpetuating his visceral love for music, transmitting it to other people.

Today, the Foundation carries on Maestro Pavarotti’s activity following the same path he has traced, offering opportunities and visibility to the young up-and-comers of opera, also trying to make the course of study and training accessible to all.

“Voice is like a wild flower, it can grow everywhere. We must search in all places, even among stones”.

“Opera should be everyone’s heritage.”
