The festival

 

A small country, Magadino, a small organ, but constantly and diligently being improved and extended by the initial good stock of Italian organ tradition; a great festival, which thanks to its international nature and to the frequent images and broadcasts by RSI [Swiss television] is well known almost worldwide.

The organ

 

The parish church of Magadino has had an organ, built in 1902 by Natale Balbiani, since the beginning of the century.

 

The sound of this first organ was incorporated into the new organ in two manuals built by the artisan family Mascioni of Cuvio in 1951.
