    Fantastic. I’ve always love the people from Italy, but now you’ve got to love them even more.

    Viva Italia!

    How wonderful. However I don’t believe this is at the Casa di Riposo; according to the FB comment he is at his own home in Milan. As I understand it Ariostini works tirelessly for the Casa including regular visits to the residence. Regardless of the location it celebrates the Italian spirit – or maybe just the human spirit – finding joy, hope, and comfort in music.

    What a marvelous thing to do! Verdi would be proud.

    I performed at Casa Verdi and talk to famous singers of the past. Piano Bechshtein was gift of Vladimir and Wanda Horowith. G.Verdi grave is in the court yard.
