Please click here to find the regulations and here to apply.



In 1989, the newborn Association “Chopin” decided to give life to a new activity aimed at young people: it was a National piano competition which had great success since its very beginning. The following year the contest for pianists had already become an International event.

With time, the competition has reached higher and higher goals which have been crowned, in 1996, by the granting of the High Patronage of the President of Italian Republic. Today, H.E. President Giorgio Napolitano bestows a personalized bronze plate to the winner. Among many sponsors, the Presidents of the Italian Senate and Chamber of Deputies donate their own medals to the second and third place winners of the “Chopin” Prize.

EPTA Europe is delighted to support the advertising of this competition, especially since the Association was founded by Marcella Crudeli, EPTA Italy President.
