Verona in love

The history of Verona is tied up inextricably with love when Shakespeare made Verona famous by setting here his most well known love play Romeo and Juliet.

Welcome to the Euro Carnevale 2016

Once a year the city of Verona celebrates its most famous carnival: the Euro Carnevale, considered one of the most beautiful carnivals in Italy.  This year it will be celebrated on the 5th of February.

This celebration preserves an ancient tradition of more than 470 years. The event aims to commemorate the end of an epidemic that killed, in 1660, many of Verona’s residents of hunger and illness. When the epidemic was extinguished Verona’s residents indicate the end of the stuffer’s period by distributing Gnocchi -a local folk food made of mushed potatoes and flour, boiled in water and served with different sauces- to the people.

Thousands of people enjoy this traditional celebration and its atmosphere. Among the events that should be remarked is the cruising contest on the Adige River and the mask parade that starts in Piazza Bra.

Opera & Art Déco: Tamara de Lempicka

Many artists have had struggles throughout their lives and many don’t get the recognition their artwork deserves in their lifetime. Maybe because she’s more contemporary, maybe because not everyone is a fan of Art Déco, Tamara de Lempicka is one of those artists. Her beautiful painting, her female nudes and her original portraits reveal a sensitivity that few other of her colleagues had at the time. Now, from September 20, 2015, to January 31, 2016, Verona is hosting an exhibition solely dedicated to Lempicka.

If you’re coming to Verona this fall, you can’t miss this monographic. It will be located at the piano salon at the Palazzo Forti, which serves as headquarters for the AMO Arena Museo Opera. The exhibition revolves around Lempicka’s portrayal of more than 200 operas through oils, designs, photography, watercolors, videos… The artwork records the genre in chronological order, from Parisian operas of the 1930s, to the latest productions of the 50s.
