2019 SERVICES Congress Banquet

Thursday July 11 19:00 - 21:00
Location: Villa Toscanini
Via 25 Aprile, 33, 26010 Ripalta Guerina CR, Italy

In the small village of Ripalta Guerina on the banks of the Serio river a few kilometers from Crema, stands Villa Monticelli-Toscanini, an example of minor architecture of the first half of the 700. The villa that for centuries has been handed down from father to son links its history to the Monticelli family, Crema nobles who used the Ripalta Guerina villa as a summer residence. In 1936 the villa was purchased by the Maestro Arturo Toscanini who chose the quiet town of the Crema countryside as a home to compose some of his works.Here, in fact, the Master gave the final touches to the scores for the inaugural concert of La Scala, rebuilt after the bombings of the Second World War.
