The second edition of the Open Piano Competition, a competition which allows pianists of different levels of ability to compete against each other and has no upper age limit, will be held in Turin, Italy in the Autumn of 2013. This vibrant city has a rich culture and history, and is known for its numerous art galleries, restaurants, churches, palaces, opera houses, theatres and museums. It is also the home town of OPC Director Marco Nannini who commented "It will be fantastic to bring the OPC to Turin, the interest in cultural events is tangible and hopefully we will find the support we need to take this competition further and grow after London 2012".

Turin may be well known as the home of the Shroud of Turin, the football team Juventus F.C., the headquarters of FIAT, Lancia and Alfa Romeo, and as host of the 2006 Winter Olympics but it is also home to the Auditorium Lingotto designed by Renzo Piano as well as being the home town to the "Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI".

Prospective competitors for the 2013 OPC are invited to register their interest online at the address and win a chance to compete for free. Details on the entry process will be published later this year.
