Ben Artists was founded in 2022 as a management and public relations agency for artists. The fast-changing Opera world today needs to put art and artists at the centre. Ben Artists aims to support its artists so they can be the real stars of the stage.

Its experience in building interaction and connection between people makes it an agency committed to both management and public relations, experiencing the world of theatre in an innovative way, also accompanying artists in building their image through social medias and their challenges.


The founder Francesco Lodola has built up extensive behind-the-scenes experience in the opera world over the years, working in major theatres in Italy and abroad. Founder and now honorary artistic director of the online platform “Ieri, Oggi, Domani, Opera!”, he has realised reviews from Italy and around the world, interviewing more than 250 artists, among whom we find prestigious opera stars of yesterday and today, including Leo Nucci, Roberto Alagna, Violeta Urmana, Jakub Józef Orliński, Nino Machaidze, Riccardo Frizza, Marina Rebeka, Dolora Zajick, Thomas Hampson, Virginia Zeani, Luca Pisaroni and many others. He has participated as a guest journalist in numerous opera singing master classes held by leading artists such as Bruna Baglioni, Fiorenza Cedolins, June Anderson and Elena Moșuc. He is also the author of an essay ‘Casa Ricordi. Una storia italiana’ recently published by Gruppo Albatros Il Filo and with a preface by Maestro Francesco Ivan Ciampa. In recent years, he has dedicated to PR management and the general management of artists.
