For the people!

What art has to stand for ….. inspiration and comfort !!!

Giuseppe Verdi did call the home he founded for elder artists his best oeuvre. And yes, Casa Verdi in Milano is a beam of light about humanitarian dedication. He turned over his entire income from his copyrights to this home for artists in need when old. And the bodies of him and his wife are are respectfully resting in the mausoleum in the building. Please do read my article about this wonderful instituition, though it is in German, Google translator might help.

This does make me think about the oeuvre of Richard Wagner, his operas are based on the eternal truth of Eastern Philosophy, showing an aspect of existence which would help so many people nowadays to find inspiration. But the family institution – still in charge – does not want to show these aspects. Why? Maybe fear? Anyhow at the moment it does seem that Verdi has chosen the better investment for his talent and fortune. But we will never give up hope, things might change fast.
