  • Perfect opportunity to re engage Zubin Mehta to organize benefit concerts involving his adored Andrea Bocelli, the Two Tenors and other populist charlatans that may seat butts.

    • Firenze cannot do without it, nor Tuscany, since there are fewer and fewer productions of opera being produced in the region of any quality. Florence would continue to be a museum and where Italy’s great musical traditions once began would become a musical desert. Someone must come up with the funds!
