Studying in Castelfranco

Castelfranco Veneto’s Conservatoire “Agostino Steffani” is a State Institution of High Culture (Istituto d’Alta Cultura) originally founded in 1969 as a separate branch of Venice Conservatoire but subsequently gaining independence in 1980. The conservatorio’s main premises are situated within the walls of Castelfranco’s medieval centre and are dominated by Villa Barbarella, which houses the academic and administration offices as well as teaching classrooms. Owing to the increase in student enrolments, further conservatoire premises have recently been established in another historically interesting setting; the recently restored rooms of the ancient Convent of the Cloister “dei Serviti”.

The conservatoire has about fifty teaching and practice rooms and also has a studio for electronic music, a conference and concert hall that seats seventy, a music library with separate audio-visual facilities. Il also has staff and student rooms with computer and internet facilities. Concerts, lessons in orchestra and opera studies and many other conservatoire activities take place in another historically interesting place; Castelfranco’s beautiful eighteenth century “Accademico” theatre.

Castelfranco Veneto Conservatoire offers a very wide range of instrumental studies, including instruments not normally taught in other conservatoires such as accordion, viola da gamba and celtic harp.

Our Production Office, organises around 150 events each year in the area, in the province of Treviso and in various locations in Italy and abroad. For a long time it managed a concert season ‘In chiave Classica’ at the Teatro Accademico in Castelfranco Veneto with the participation of high-profile artists.
In collaboration with the Conservatory, the following are organised every year: The Jazz Festival, The Sax Festival, and the Guitar Festival.
The conservatory’s International Office works tirelessly to promote the internationalisation of the institute and the participation of foreign guests and students in all the conservatory’s most vital activities: from lectures and master classes to concerts and festivals.
