In the year of the centenary of the death of Giacomo Puccini, the city of Salsomaggiore Terme organized a series of meetings on the theme of "Chini, Puccini and the Terme Berzieri" with the scientific coordination of Maurizia Bonatti Bacchini.

In fact, Salsomaggiore can also boast historical links with the great musician who maintained friendships and collaborations with Galileo Chini, the artist of the spa town, author of the decorative systems at the Terme Berzieri, at the Grand Hotel des Thermes (now Palazzo dei Congressi), and at Villa Fonio.
