The first stop will be in Roncole, where you will visit the humble house of Giuseppe Verdi and retrace the places that inspired his artistic education, from the museum where his ancient piano is kept, to the Theater where “Il Rigoletto” and “Il Ballo in Maschera” where played for the first time. After a lunch full of typical products, you will move towards Cremona, birthplace of the great luthier Antonio Stradivari, to visit the Violin Museum and admire some of the most ancient and precious instruments in the world.

You will then have the chance to see the workshop of an expert luthier and observe the great attention and care wherewith these instruments, true works of art, are still produced. We will then take a walk in the centre of town, that claims a cathedral square among the most beautiful in our country, and the famous “Torrazzo”, the tallest bell tower in Italy.

DID YOU KNOW THAT...

 

THERE ARE ONLY 600 STRADIVARI VIOLINS LEFT IN THE WHOLE WORLD?

Each one of them is a precious and unique treasure as it was made by the biggest luthier of all times. They are incredibly expensive. Just think about the fact that the violin called “Lady Blunt” has been sold, during a charity auction in favor of Japanfor the modest cost of 15.8 million dollars!!

ABOUT VERDI!

Few people know that Verdi, one of the most famous masters and composers in the history of music, tried, when he was 19, to enter the Milan Conservatory but he was not accepted because of the wrong setting of his hands on the piano!
