The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Italian Embassy in Vietnam will jointly organise a music performance on June 1 with the attendance of two well-known Italian artists, soprano Paola Stafficci and pianist Stefano Ragni.

Stafficci studied at the Conservatorio “F. Morlacchi” in Perugia , with highest graduating grades. She then refined her vocal technique, focusing on the classic Italian Opera repertoire.

She took part in many master classes in Italy and abroad with world renowned artists and achieved the final phases of several international competitions, among them the “Pavarotti International”.

After first performing in 1996 in “Tosca” and “Aida” in Odessa ( Ukraine ), Stafficci has played several key roles in the Italian Opera, receiving huge appreciation from both audiences and critics.

Pianist Stefano Ragni has performed in many countries in Europe and Latin America . He has been working as critic for the last twenty years, and is the author of several works. Among his publications is the "Course of History of Music" for Italian students./.
