Every year Verona’s Arena attracts tourists from all over the world.
Once it was a theater for gladiator fights, today it is considered the ideal architecture for Operas and concerts of international artists.
Built nearly 2,000 years ago, the amphitheater has survived time, always maintaining an important position in Verona’s public and cultural lives.
It was in 1913 that the Arena became of primary importance to Italian music and theater: that was the year that the great Giovanni Zenatello produced, actually, the first performance of Aida on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Giuseppe Verdi.
The reach of that event was such to guarantee the international success of the amphitheater for more than a century: today the Arena is recognized
as one of the best opera theaters in the world.
