MeglioMantova is proud to present an evening in concert whose proceeds will be donated to the Fondazione di Palazzo d’Arco as a contribution to the restoration of the Hofer hall.
9.30 pm. Greeting by Gaia Tosoni, president of the MeglioMantova organising committee and Italo Scaietta, Director of the Arco Foundation, who will illustrate the restoration work under way in the Hofer hall, which the event will help to fund.
9:45 pm Start of the Concert, written at the end of the 18th century, in honour of Count Giovan Battista Gherardo d’Arco, and as a tribute to Madame Clicquot, born in 1778, who became one of the first female entrepreneurs in modern history, as Federica Pradella will relate in her historical portrait.
Andrea Flora, Diego Fusari, Gabriella Pezzoli and Loredana Sartorello from the F. Campogalliani Academy will transport us to the French Court with their interpretations freely taken from the famous novel Les liaisons dangereuses (The Dangerous Relationships), written in 1785 by Pierre Ambroise -François Choderlos de Laclos and considered a masterpiece of French literature. Set in late eighteenth-century France, it tells the love stories of two noblemen and libertines in letter-form.
The readings will alternate with musical interventions, curated by the Orchestra da Camera di Mantova with Gianandrea Guerra (Violin) and Maurizio Piantelli (Tiorba) who will make the atmosphere even more fascinating by performing for us live a concert of chamber music of the eighteenth century from the title “Diverse Bizarre”.
At 10.45 pm the Veuve Clicquot Company tells its story, revealing the secrets of its magnificent Champagne.
11.00 pm Tasting in the garden of Palazzo d’Arco by the Venice Bar with Saint Petersburg Champagne by Veuve Clicquot and Ostriche.
