    At the opening of the Book Fair, the prestigious Alte Oper theatre in Frankfurt will host an extraordinary event. In celebration of Giacomo Puccini’s centenary and Italy's appearance as Guest of Honour at the Book Fair after 36 years, the orchestra of the Arena di Verona will perform a tribute to the great composer together with some of the finest Italian voices.  

    This high-profile concert is a tribute not only to the mastery of Puccini but also to canto lirico in Italy, included on the official UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage list.  

    The event, made even more memorable by the presence of the highest government officials, will also masterfully represent the combination of past and future, tradition and innovation that inspired the motto “Roots in the Future”.
