SATURDAY, OCTOBER 7 DAY 3 THE VERDI HOMELANDS We’ll spend the day outside Parma touring the places that Giuseppe Verdi called home. The house where he was born; a place of work and sacrifice, and where the composer began his musical life learning on a spinetta. We will see the ancient church of Saint Michele Archangelo where Verdi was baptised and was tutored on the organ. The organ, built in 1797 and restored in 2000, will be featured in a private musical performance by Maestro Dino Rizzo, a great Verdi scholar.
