The following is a detailed description of the exhibition:

The exhibition was begun in December, 2005 , and reveals the many-sided nature of the great star, the life of a woman who it is impossible not to love, a year after she passed away.

It is an acknowledgement justly made to our most extraordinary opera singer, who, with her angelic voice and her rigorous knowledge as a musician inebriated theatre goers of every country, a witness to Italian Art and Culture. The exhibition is a traveling exhibition, and it is an event for music lovers, and in general for the entire public. The exhibition was co-produced in collaboration with the Regio Theatre of Parma, and was inaugurated on the 19th of December, 2005. It then went to the Scala Theatre, to the Statsoper of Vienna, to the Massimo of Palermo, to the Liceu of Barcellona and to the Losanna Opera, to the Sheremetyev Palace of St. Petersburg, to the Stanislavnskij Theatre – Nemirovic-Dancenko of Mosca, to the San Carlo Theatre of Napoli and to the Operà of Lyon In 2010 it will go on to Trieste, Beijing, Madrid, Bilbao etc.

During the exhibition it will be possible to listen to musical pieces by the singer, see unpublished videos, television interviews from the archives of the different theatres.

Brava Tebaldi, sempre nei nostri cuori
