We were fortunate enough to be given a private tour of this magnificent old theatre in Recanati, Italy, called Teatro Persiani. My cousin, Norma Stramucci, a renowned Italian poet from Recanati, kindly organised this for us. We were also given a private tour of the Museo Beniamino Gigli, a world renowned opera singer from the early half of last century. The museum is also in the same building. They were both fantastic tours!
