Dinner quickly approached and we made our way to a restaurant where we were met by one of Heathers colleagues Debra, who writes the bagni di lucca and beyond blog, and her husband Jim. After dinner we walked to ‘I Concert degli Angeli Custodi’ (Concert of the Guardian Angels) which featured opera singers Giancarlo Monsalve (tenor), Federico Nicoletta (pianist) and his amazing brother Simone Nicoletta playing the clarinet. Besides the amazing music, all celebrating music by Giuseppe Verdi (Don Carlo, Macbeth, etc), a female opera singer from Japan wow’d us all as a special surprise guest. Simply amazing.
