Italian Spoleto is internationalized in Charleston:

Spoleto festival was conceived by composer Maestro, Gian Carlo Menotti whose idea was to join two cultures (American and European) in one event. The Spoleto festival, for this reason, is also called a festival of two worlds”. Founded in 1977, the US Spoleto festival is now acclaimed as a great innovative event where one can experience art in all its expressions. The organizers selected Charleston in the USA as a counterpart to the Italian city of Spoleto because of its wealth of theatres, churches, and other performance locations as well as its robust infrastructure.

Tips for visitors:

The calendar for each upcoming Spoleto festival is scheduled by October. All one needs is to sign up for email notification at Spoleto website, as early as possible. I will advise all visitors to have a Map App downloaded on your mobile phone. This will save you being lost in the winding alleys of Charleston.

Since thousands of visitors both local and outsiders pour into the city, it is better to book accommodation ahead of time. You should not miss the art show in Marion square which features, where different painters and photographers showcase their work for several days. The summer season of the festival demands a lot of shorts, tees and flowy dresses to be worn to be comfortable during the festival.
