Opera enthusiasts cannot miss this intriguing museum. In its 30-plus rooms, the steps of the creative process behind an opera show are outlined: librettos, images, letters, scripts, sketches, original costumes, stage models and much more, reveal the intricate and fascinating pathway from beginning to end.
The museum is hosted by the rooms of the 1700s building Palazzo Forti, that in its innermost part clearly shows the vivid traces of the original medieval structure. A variety of illustrious residents or guests have lived or visited the palace: from Ezzelino da Romano in the medieval era, to important aristocratic Veronese families, to Napoleon Bonaparte himself in 1797, and finally Field Marshal Radetzky during Hapsburg rule.
The Museum also hosts temporary exhibits related to music or other arts, that attract a vast public from outside the city.
