Le Dimore del Quartetto’s network is open not only to historic houses, but also to all the houses that have the possibility to host and that belong to dynamic and passionate people.
To take part in our network, you must be able to provide the quartet with 4 beds and a room adequate for rehearsals. In exchange for your valuable hospitality, the musicians will donate a concert (the value of which, usually, is approximately 2,000 euros). The concert may be private, for you and your guests, or open to the public.

TO BE A HOUSE OF LE DIMORE DEL QUARTETTO
To be a Dimora (House) of Le Dimore del Quartetto means to be part of an international network enhancing the cultural heritage and the best musical talents at the beginning of their career.
By bringing chamber music back to those places for which it was conceived, your House will be covered with new energies and its history will be valued through an innovative and contemporary cultural formula.
Enhancing the beauty of the territories (even the most remote) the House becomes a cultural reference for the local community.
Lastly, being a Dimora gives you the opportunity to offer special experiences to your friends or customers, and makes your properties and local products known. Indeed, the Products and Lifestyle section on our website aims at promoting the territorial identity of the Houses of our network through their products, activities and unique experiences. The Dimora have the opportunity to increase the visibility of its services and products with a deep level of promotion through an online showcase on Products and Lifestyle with links to the portfolios of all the houses involved, and dedicated newsletters and communication via our social channels, newspapers, and magazines.
For those Houses interested in Product and Lifestyle, it is possible to join our network at the “Presto” level (€244 VAT included). By choosing, instead, to become a Supporter House (“Largo” level: €610 VAT included), in addition to all the services mentioned above, you will be able to access private concerts in the Houses of our network (in Italy and abroad) and to be mentioned as a “Supporter Houses” on our website.
For those Houses not interested in the “Presto” and “Largo” offers, but nonetheless willing to join Le Dimore del Quartetto, it is possible to participate at the “Adagio” level, free of charge. This entry-level entitles the House to have a dedicated page on our site and to host free concerts in exchange for residences for the ensembles.
