UGA Concert Venue on Saturday, May 30: San Michele Arcangelo
The Church of Montacuto, today called Montù Beccaria, was erected in honor of St. Michael the Archangel (San Michele Arcangelo) in August 1303 by Pope Boniface VIII, as declared in the will of Count Manfredi Beccaria. The building features numerous architectural styles ranging from Medieval to Baroque. The church seats about 300 people and is known as a prime concert venue in the Pavia region of Lombardia. San Michele Arcangelo is located in a beautiful yet rather unknown area of Italy. At Incantato, we encourage the fine choirs traveling with us to step off the beaten path for a full immersion into the local culture.
