“Verdi Off has not changed – says Barbara Minghetti -, its spirit has not changed, with its widespread, free and multidisciplinary concerts. Last year with the Verdi Street Parade, 30.000 people gathered in Piazza Duomo to sing Va Pensiero all together. On the contrary, this year we will go to join them to sing under their windows, in the courts. Due to its widespread and capillary nature, Verdi Off will be among the pilot projects of “La Cultura Cura” dedicated by Parma Italian Capital of Culture 2020 + 21 to the collective well-being. Verdi will be brought to homes, and we will sing all together, and each one from his own home, to witness an important presence in the city, and because we are convinced that Verdi’s music can “cure us” after this difficult moment.
