On Sunday 16 he will step on the podium to conduct the grandiose Verdi masterpiece of sacred music, at the helm of the Arturo Toscaninini Philharmonic and of the Choir of the Municipal Theater of Piacenza prepared by Corrado Casati.

TEATRO MUNICIPALE DI PIACENZA

The first stone of the building was set by Mr. Moreau de Saint-Méry, Duchy’s general administrator on behalf of France, and it was inaugurated in 1804 during a popular feast with fireworks and a horse fair. The project of the Municipal Theatre came from an idea of the architect Lotario Tomba, and it took shape through the joint action of some noble families in Piacenza who united in a group in 1803. The façade, retouched in 1830 by Alessandro Sanquirico – scenographer and architect who worked at La Scala in Milan, and also on the decorations inside the Municipal Theatre – recalls the more famous model by Piermarini for La Scala.
