Tourism in Verona
Ah! Je Veux Vivre Verona.
(“Roméo et Juliette” di Charles Gounod)
The city of music and poetry
Verona is the town where takes place the most famous Shakespeare’s drama: Romeo and Juliet. Set of the battle between Montecchi and Capuleti and nest of the immortal love of these two young lovers.
It is also the Italian capital of Opera where millions of people, during mild summers, enjoy the masterpieces of Romanticist composers in the Arena Roman Theater. Here Maria Callas debuted in 1947 and began her extraordinary career.
In 1770 a very young Wolfang Amadeus Mozart, during one of his Italian trip, performed in the Sala Maffeiana. This is what Leopold wrote in a letter to his wife: Upon my word … I had never seen anything so beautiful … It is not a theater, but a room with lodges. In place of the scene there is a platform for music and behind it lodges built as a gallery. The people, the applause, the shouts, the noise, the constant ovation, in short: all this admiration shown by the listeners, I don’t know how to describe it.
All these great people chose this city for living or sharing their art. Here they left vibrant marks in a rich and outstanding city declared heritage of humanity.
