Verdissime.com Sempre libera

Inaugurated in Busseto in June 2008, the Verdissime.com, sempre libera Association was officially presented in Milan on October 10th, 2008: Its legal seat is at the Piacenza Provincial Administration while its operative seat is at the City of Roccabianca (PR). The association is composed of 35 members who identify with the 35 female figures in Verdi's operas. Honorary president is Giulio Manfredi, art director of the Manfredi brand, who has also created the broach that is the symbol of the Association for Verdissime.com.

With its “feminine” manifestations the association aims to commemorate Giuseppina Strepponi, the second wife of the Maestro, who, endowed with extraordinary talent and sensitivity, accompanied Verdi through his years of creative maturity, staying by his side at the Villa Sant'Agata.
Among the group's past initiatives was the noteworthy VIVA V.E.R.D.I. National Competition for the composition of a patriotic hymn for Band and reciting or singing voice, for the 150th anniversary of the Unity of Italy, presided over by Giorgio Battistelli and won by Daniele Quaglia, a student of the Rossini Conservatory of Pesaro, with the title “Dolce Italia”...()
