The international chess festival held at Montecatini Terme, Italy from July 28th to August 6th, 2000 was divided among several events, including a main GM tournament and an open tournament. Eight grandmasters participated in the round robin main event, including (in order of Elo): Alexey Shirov (2746), Vassily Ivanchuk (2719), Evgeny Bareev (2702), Zurab Azmaiparashvili (2673), Sergei Rublevsky (2670), Jeroen Piket (2649), Smbat Lputian (2598), and Artashes Minasian (2595). The average rating of the players qualified the main tournament as a Category XVII event.
