Why does the foundation exist?
and also the projects carried out by the foundation (homepage navigation, left) that the International Giuseppe Verdi Foundation would like to achieve within a short space of time.
This involves projects that may be partly linked with one another, but which still deserve attention on an individual level as priorities. For that reason, the foundation has selected some key projects and brought them to the fore, highlighting them as imperative. These are set out as follows under a., b., and c.
This centre could be established in:
the Villa Verdi (Sant' Agata),
one of the buildings to be constructed in the original style in the Villa Verdi park;
the Palazzo Orlandi, following restoration (Verdi's residence from 1845 to 1851);
the Casa di Riposo per Musicisti Giuseppe Verdi (Milan),
one of the palazzos made available by the cities of Parma, Piacenza or Cremona or a representative house.
It may also be an option to acquire or rent a representative old building at Lake Garda or Lake Como in the event that the above-mentioned options are not available.
Once the restauration has been completed, Giuseppe Verdi's first residence in the Palazzo could be used as follows:
In conclusion, this points strongly once more to the fact that although all International Giuseppe Verdi Foundation projects are of great importance, the PROJECTS DESCRIBED HERE should be given absolute priority.
This, of course, requires the right resources, which is why the advisory board and trustees of the International Giuseppe Verdi Foundation would like to invite all those interested in Verdi to take part in financing the project or to help in other ways.
