The Stauffer Center for Strings is the first international music center for higher education, research, composition, production, management and innovation, entirely dedicated to string instruments.
Established in 2021 in Cremona inside Palazzo Stauffer (formerly Palazzo Stradiotti), an iconic historic building that has been restored and converted into a multipurpose campus, the Center is home to the Stauffer Academy and Stauffer Labs, creative and innovation departments.
The facility includes an exclusive concert hall, a series of study rooms and lecture halls, a recording studio, a digital media library, a cafeteria and a guesthouse, set in a charming romantic garden.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 with the aim of ending poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring peace and prosperity for all humanity by 2030.
A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence.
