Who wouldn't like to sit next to Giuseppe Verdi and take a selfie with him?
From now on you can do that! On March 24, the statue of the Maestro was finally installed in front of the House of Music, a stone's throw away from Piazza Duomo. The art work, studied and made by the artist Sergio Brizzolesi, had already been presented in Milan during Expo 2015.
"Verdi's bench", weighing around 400 Kg, is conceived to be a street piece of art: not only is it a commemorative monument to admire, but also a sculpture that will be part of the city, attracting hundreds of fascinated tourists.
The city, declared 2020 Italian Capital of Culture, adds a new masterpiece to its list of outstanding monuments in the city center. Piazzale San Francesco, indeed, is just 100 meters from the Baptistery and Cathedral. Take a selfie with the Maestro before continuing your itinerary around the Ducal city!
