"Persona" cultural centre is a unique place for Togliatti and Russia. Established in 2002 by a merchant Sergey Botov, the centre is situated in the building of local brewery. “Persona” ’s remarkable feature is a chamber concert hall with marvellous acoustics and art gallery. Small but perfectly organised, it is located in a beautiful local forest.

The centre has achieved what few cultural centres have, it flourishes as a space where the culture and outstanding art seem to be owned by intelligent people. Entry is free for every art event but concert hall accommodates only 35 visitors. There are seats for the most experienced art lovers.

Twelve years of work for the centre was a long period of crucial cultural moments. The “Persona” hosted a wide range of events, summing up to 380 musical concerts, 7 festivals of chamber music “Irina Kandinskaya and “Persona” invite…”, 40 art exhibitions, shows of the theatre “Variant”, performances of Maya Plisetskaya school’s pupils and master classes.

Haydn, Schubert, Chopin, Borodin, Scriabin, Beethoven and many other world famous composers were played in the concert hall. The “Persona” was visited by famous musicians and artists such as Denis Matsuyev, Dmitry Bashkirov, Irina Kandinskaya, Natalia Gutman, Andrey Gavrilov, Alexey Nasedkin, Eliso Virsaladze, Vladimir Tropp, Mikhail Gantvarg.

The founder of the centre, Sergey Botov, demonstrates how important is the unselfish attention to art and charity for society. So, the cultural centre “Persona” spellbinds visitors, opens sheer abundance for each art lover. It’s like a home for local intelligence and various art workers. Undoubtedly, this place deserves tourist’s attention as it is one of the most interesting places in Togliatti.
