In the summer of 1913, to celebrate the centenary of the birth of Giuseppe Verdi, the tenor Giovanni Zenatello and the theatre impresario Ottone Rovato took on the financial risk of promoting a magnificent lyrical festival. With the staging of Aida, the Arena di Verona became the biggest open-air lyrical theatre in the world, a supremacy that it still holds today. Each summer, the event features renowned operas performed by some of the greatest artists in the sonically perfect 2000-year-old Roman amphitheatre attracting both passionate opera lovers and visiting tourists.
