Let’s start our visit with two medieval monuments, the Cathedral and the Baptistery, among the most representative examples of Romanesque and Gothic art in Northern Italy, featuring magnificent sculptures by Benedetto Antelami. The Cathedral and the nearby church of S. Giovanni also offer breathtaking domes painted by Correggio, whose illusionism inspired the Baroque painting. Then, we’ll take a stroll along elegant city streets until reaching Teatro Regio (outside visit), giving us the opportunity to illustrate the great musical tradition of these lands and its leading figures:Verdi and Toscanini. Finally, we’ll visit Teatro Farnese,  a stunning wooden theatre inside Palazzo della Pilotta, built under the patronage of the Farnese family.
