Vincent Persichetti Music Association


























The Vincent Persichetti Association has two centers. The first is in Falconara Marittima near Ancona. The second is in Torricella Peligna, in the province of Chieti, the ancestral home of Vincent Persichettiís family.

Falconara Marittima is the principal center. It has a large and comfortable room for concerts and meetings. It is also where the founding members live.

Torricella Peligna is historically important because it is a common reference point for our association and Vincent Persichetti. Thanks to the assistance of the townspeople, we are able to organize activities there as well, especially in the summertime.

Torricella Peligna


The President, Rosanna Persichitti, born in Torricella, very much wanted a center in Torricella because it was the composerís fatherís place of origin. Her goal was to familiarize the townspeople with Vincent Persichetti and his origins. Torricella Peligna, in the province of Chieti, is the bond between the association and the American musician. It seemed most appropriate for us to have a presence in this little town that never forgets its offspring.


The center is located on Via delle Coste, 68, in the old and historic part of Torricella. The center is near the home where the composerís father Vincenzo was born. Above right is a present-day photograph of Le Coste, the original name given to this part of the town. Above left is the town in the 1920ís.
