A One-of-a-kind Theatre
The Verona Arena is becoming the 2013 capital of opera for the anniversaries of Verdi and Wagner. The amphitheatre is unique in the world and offers an acoustic experience that cannot be found elsewhere. Maserati and Bowers & Wilkins have drawn inspiration from its perfection to create audio systems worthy of the two brands’ history.
In the 'Bel Paese' you can find yourself listening to concerts in historical, one of a kind locations like the Verona Arena. The quality of the acoustics in this perfectly preserved amphitheatre is even better than other modern concert venues. Just like the sound of a Maserati engine or a Bowers & Wilkins audio system, there's no mistaking an aria being sung in the Verona Arena.
Purity of sound is essential, as any musician from Bollani to Springsteen can tell you. Perfect acoustics require accuracy, careful selection of materials and examination of the spaces and dimensions. Maserati discovered this attention to detail in the Bowers & Wilkins systems, making it possible to recreate within a Maserati, a purity of sound worthy of an ancient theatre.
The Verona Arena is one of the few places in the world where you can still experience the sensation of perfect sound, the product of ancient genius that still today has remained the acoustic model par excellence. The arena is a Roman amphitheatre built between the first and second centuries A.D., now located in the heart of the historic centre of the city, and is one of a small number of monuments in which it is still possible to attend concerts and operas. The year 2013 will, therefore, be one of great intensity, given the double celebration of the anniversaries of Wagner and Verdi, which will be celebrated in the Arena with the Centenary Festival, an excellent opportunity to enjoy live the emotions of a perfect acoustic experience.
Those arriving at the Arena in a Maserati will have the advantage of having their ears already in tune to absolute purity thanks to Bowers & Wilkins. It is quite possible that, sooner or later, the world tour of the Seven Note Project (link to the specific article) will see a Maserati Motor perform on this historical stage. The tracks recorded by musician and producer Howie B in the legendary Abbey Road studios capturing the seven notes emitted by the Maserati engine are the ideal soundtrack to reach the city of the Scaligers and attend an unforgettable concert.
