Riccardo Muti: Things to do before I diemain
From an interview today with Die Welt:
I think the time has come to reflect on my roots. I always wanted to return to Ithaca, like Odysseus. Even if my Penelope Christina was mostly with me. Now is the time to think about me. I bought some land below Castel del Monte, the famous castle of Frederick II, nothing special, rather poor, with olive trees and a few trulli that I had restored. And now I finally want to experience the harvest there. These are my dreams before I go into the dark. I hope I get purgatory, nothing in the ice …
Riccardo Muti will turn 80 next year.
