The Centro Studi Opera omnia Luigi Boccherini (Onlus) of Lucca was established in November 2005 to carry out the editorial work relating to the complete works of the lucchese composer Luigi Boccherini. The choice of Lucca as a location is not by chance: Luigi Boccherini was born in Lucca, so it is the natural site on which to launch the Italian National Edition of Luigi Boccherini's Complete Works.
The Centro Studi Opera Omnia Luigi Boccherini organizes International Conferences and Symposia on various musicological topics and has founded the Boccherini Festival.
The Centro Studi provides to the organization of international music masterclasses and music abroad programmes with the most important universities throughout the world.
