The Untouchable Ennio Morricone

The award-winning prodigal son is coming back home. Ennio Morricone is closing his European summer tour at the Arena di Verona next September 12, and his concert is a total must-go. The performance will cover some of his most famous compositions for cinema and television, played by a grand orchestra.

Ennio Morricone composer


If you get emotional easily, make sure to bring your tissues, because masterpieces will align one after another. The Untouchables (1987), The Mission (1986), A fistful of dollars (1964), Once upon a time in America (1984) or The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) are just some of the legendary soundtracks that will sound next Saturday at the stunning scenario provided by the Arena.

86-year-old Morricone is a living legend. He has composed more than 500 pieces for the big screen and TV, and the value of his legacy and its influence on younger composers are undeniable. Don’t forget to book your tickets in advance for this once in a lifetime opportunity and, afterwards, dream of Morricone’s paradise at Palazzo Victoria.

The time of your life: Dirty Dancing @ the Arena

If you are an 80s kid, you will most likely remember Baby and Johnny at Kellerman’s camp. Their love story was just as thrilling as their dance scenes, and, let’s be honest, all of us wanted to be Jennifer Grey or Patrick Swayze at some point in the movie. Dirty Dancing became one of the most iconic romantic comedies ever and gave us the time of our lives. Since it’s one of our favorites too, we are so excited for this great news: Baby and Johnny are coming to town!



Next August 10th, Dirty Dancing arrives at the Arena di Verona for one night only! The classic story is staged by The Dirty Dancing Company, one of the most talented musical theater crews, under the direction of Federico Bellone. Scenery, music, dance and performances will be framed by the spectacular Arena, which will definitely enhance the whole experience. If you want to relive Baby and Johnny’s love story, don’t miss out and buy your tickets in advance.

Here at Palazzo Victoria, your favorite hotel in Verona, we will also make sure you have the time of your life!
