Every year the festival dedicated to the famous composer Ruggero Leoncavallo is held in Brissago. At the beginning of the 20th century he settled in Brissago where he wrote various works and compositions for piano.

The festival, directed by the Brissago tenor Ottavio Palmieri, takes place over three weekends in the Church Madonna del Ponte, with an impressive musical programme and internationally renowned performers.

The 2020 edition, which was scheduled from May 16th to 30th, was cancelled following the health emergency linked to Covid_19.
