The Italians use the word “musicality” a lot to describe their language and there are parts of the grammar that have been adapted to support the melodiousness of la lingua.
Naturally, there is also the literal music of the country.
I am staying right around the corner from Puccini’s casa, which I mentioned in a previous post is unfortunately closed for renovations, but there is a little restaurant opposite the house that has/is hosting five concert dinners this summer and tonight was one of those nights.
As the casa and the aforementioned restaurant are right off a little piazza, many people assembled in the square to overhear the concert; a soprano, mezzosoprano, and a pianoforte.
It was a magical evening, the weather was unusually fresh tonight and the music and voices could simply sweep one away.
