Giuseppe Verdi 200: your interactive guide

 Verdi just turned 200, and to celebrate the region of Emilia-Romagna and the Province of Parma, Italy, have created a beautiful website dedicated to the genius that is Giuseppe Verdi. Here you can find biographies, films, libretti, archival documents, exhibitions, tour guides, apps and photos all lovingly curated and offered free to the public. Oh, and the site is offered in English as well as Italian.

I loved scrolling through the photograph and caricatures galleries and have included a few pics below. The one of Verdi resting on his laurels is especially charming.

The Verdi 200 project can be found at www.giuseppeverdi.it
