Breaking: Daniele Gatti is named music director in Romemain
His appointment, as head of Opera di Roma, is effective immediately.
It was approved by the mayor of Rome, Virginia Raggi, in consultation with the national government.
The deal was secured by Rome’s major powerful sovrintendete Carlo Fuortes.
As far as Italy is concerned, #MeToo is over.

Gatti last night opened the season with a triumphant Rigoletto, attended by the mayor and the sovrintendente (pictured). His #MeToo exile has lasted just three months, presumably with time off for good behaviour.
