International quilters and fabric artists were celebrated in seven historical buildings in and around Verona's city center.
Verona is famous for its music and, starting in April, concerts and operas are performed in the Roman Arena above. The Ad Maiora Association sponsored a contest: "...e lucean le stelle" (...and the stars shone). This is a piece of music from the world famous Opera Tosca by Giacomo Puccini. Here are are some of the quilts inspired by this theme.
