Parma Cathedral

The king of dramatic melody and Italian passion died on January 27th 1901. He was admired, revered and acknowledged as probably the greatest composer Italy or perhaps the World ever produced. He was of the humblest origins born in the small village of Roncole, growing up in nearby Busseto close to Parma. The town of Busseto is rich of Verdi memorials. The Teatro Verdi and the Museo Civico in the Villa Pallavicino, the Villa Verdi in a park near SantAgata are full of Verdis memorabilia, reminding us of the great Romantic Composer. Let us pay homage to the master by visiting locales of his origins and enjoying his compositions at places so significant in his musical career.
