 Alberto Veronesi, conductor, music director of the Puccini Festival in Torre del Lago (Lucca), brought a piano to Piazza Scala, and began playing the first act of Bohème, when the penniless artist Rodolfo and Mimì meet.

To interpret arias from Puccini's opera singers tied with strings: a symbolic staging - deliberately carried out in front of the most famous opera house in the world - to raise awareness of the situation of show business workers.


    "Salaries to precarious workers", "Continuity income for cultural workers" are some of the signs they had with them. This is not Veronesi's first show-protest, who last March 31 directed a concert under the headquarters of the Region Lombardy. "Consciences must be shaken in the face of an economic, social and cultural drama that cannot be ignored by public opinion, because no one from above will solve the problems for those who are precarious, intermittent, unprotected" said Veronesi, who in the last municipal elections he had stood as a candidate on the Sala list, announcing the initiative in Piazza Scala.
