ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS PERFORMANCE
THE SAVING OF GIUSEPPE VERDI’S ESTATE ACCORDING TO FRANCESCO MELI
How did the idea of a concert to save Sant’Agata come about?
The Carrara-Verdi family, heirs of the maestro, are no longer able to maintain the estate, with the splendid garden where Verdi had exotic trees planted, such as a ginkgo biloba and the famous persimmon under which he used to rest. The first to launch a public appeal was his friend Luca Salsi, baritone, on his Instagram profile. All of us then thought of joining forces to prevent such an important asset for our history of music, and more, from being lost.
What does Villa Sant’Agata represent today?
It is one of the fundamental sites of the history of Italy, the heart of the Risorgimento, where pages of immortal music were born. In Villa Sant’Agata, which Verdi bought for his parents in 1848, the great composer lived from 1851 until shortly before his death in 1901. Since then the rooms, the furnishings and the garden have remained intact, keeping the memory alive. of the illustrious owner; the images that portray him in the garden, surrounded by family and friends are beautiful. It is a historic, mythical place, not only for opera lovers, which does not deserve to be alienated, but which should become a museum.
