Path of Astor Piazzolla Foundation

Trayectoria Piazzolla

The Astor Piazzolla Foundation was created in 1995 on the initiative of Laura Escalada Piazzolla, wife of the famous musician and composer, in order to promote culture and arts, particularly music, giving prominence to the dissemination, study and teaching of Master Astor Piazzolla's work.
Over the years, outstanding activities and projects were developed through partnerships with public sector organizations and private sector institutions that shaped the proposal of the Astor Piazzolla Foundation. Since its inception, the challenge of the organization has been to contribute to the valuation of the culture and artistic expressions that constitute the national identity. A summary of the most important milestones of the Foundation highlights the following events:
