Denmark pays tribute to the great Hans Christian Andersen
A new museum dedicated to the world famous writer Hans Christian Andersen has just opened in his hometown, Odense in Denmark. The museum, the work of Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, is inspired by fairy tales and covers some 5,600 m2.
One part has been built underground to create a magical garden space. It is a life-size tribute to the fertile imagination of the Danish writer and father of The Little Mermaid.
The waste of talent at the Verona Opera Festival
It is one of the most famous opera festivals. Like every summer, the huge Roman amphitheater becomes the largest open-air opera house in the world to host the Verona Opera Festival.
This year’s program features operas by Giacomo Puccini, Franco Alfano and Giuseppe Verdi. Attendees will be able to enjoy La Traviata, Aida and Nabucco, among others, until September 4.
France presents Banksy in its “street world”
Until July 10, the public will be able to enjoy the latest Banksy exhibition. And as expected, the collection is not presented in a prestigious gallery or large museum. The exhibition is located on the outskirts of Paris in the middle of an industrial area, true to the artist’s style.
