Ravello | Amalfi Coast

The town has served as destination and inspiration for artists, musicians, and writers, including Giovanni Boccaccio, Richard Wagner, Edvard Grieg, M. C. Escher, Virginia Woolf, Greta Garbo, Gore Vidal, André Gide, Joan Mirò, Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams, Graham Greene, Jacqueline Kennedy, Leonard Bernstein and Sara Teasdale (who mentioned it in her prefatory dedication in “Love Songs”).

Every year, in the summer months, the “Ravello Festival” takes place. It began in 1953 in honour of Richard Wagner, who signed the guestbook of his local hotel with the words “The magical garden of Klingsor is found” suggesting that it was in Ravello that the composer found the inspiration for his Parsifal.
