Places to visit in Milan. Languages: en, he, ru

From the Verme Theater on the street of Giacomo Puccini, we again walk out to the great Bonaparte Forum Avenue, and in front of us is Luigi Illica. The theater culture, so significant in Milan, owes its grandiose success to him. After all, he wrote the libretto for the glorious operas of Puccini. His most famous opera librettos are La Boheme, Tosca, Madame Butterfly, and Andrea Chenier. Even in the era of silent cinema, which went into fashion at the beginning of the twentieth century, the best movie ads were on-screen photographs of Luigi. By the way, he has always portrayed in half-turn hiding the right side. Luigi lost his right ear in a duel. To this day, the most prestigious and oldest award given to world-famous opera singers, conductors, directors, and authors is the prize is the International Luigi Illiki Prize, established in 1961.
