In the latest edition of Hamamatsu International Piano Competition, Japan, ended on December 6th, as many as three pianists from the Imola Academy gained a prize, i.e. Roman Lopatynsky won the second, Alexia Mouza the third and Florian Mitrea the fourth, respectively. Alexia Mouza is now studying in Tel Aviv, Israel, where she’s attending a specialization course, but she was raised at the Imola Academy for more than 10 years, having moved to Imola at a very early age.
The International Piano Academy of Imola is a high specialization piano school, born in the Eighties thanks to the intuition of M° Franco Scala. The idea was to open the borders of the traditional didactics, i.e to release the student from the ties of one single teacher. This is where the name of the Academy, “Incontri col Maestro” (meetings with the Maestro) comes from.
The Academy, with its 200 students per year, coming from more than 40 countries, stands out as a true Italian heritage in the field of education and culture, able to attract talents from all over the world.
