A vivid memory, a dream that goes on
Maestro Pavarotti brought opera to a worldwide audience of millions. His spectacular voice, disarming charisma and boundless generosity touched the hearts of many.
While his accomplishments place him in the Olympus of artists, his most significant legacy is his sense of culture’s power to build a better world.
As a United Nations Messenger of Peace, Maestro Pavarotti used opera as a healing force for millions of young people. His sense of duty – to share passion and nurture talent – lives on as we help young singers to shape their future.
“I want to reach as many people as possible with the message of music, of marvellous opera”
A vivid memory
Great concerts and exhibitions all over the world, a home-museum in his city
To keep alive the memory of one of the most beloved artists of our time, the Foundation organizes events all over the world and has opened the doors of Maestro’s home in his hometown.
The charity concerts organized by the Foundation bring on the same stage the most illustrious opera singers together with the most acclaimed pop voices, to create memorable contaminations in the name of music without barriers.
The exhibitions present Luciano Pavarotti as the artist and the man he was, in order to pay tribute to his iconic profile, to his unparalleled performance and also to his charisma and extraordinary humanity.
The visit to the Modena home-museum allows to discover Pavarotti in the most intimate and warm light of his rooms, gently approaching his memory while admiring his personal objects, getting to know his daily habits, and discovering the family man hidden behind the great artist.
A dream that goes on
Young talents represent the heart of Foundation’s mission. Perhaps not many people know that Maestro Pavarotti gave free singing lessons to many students he considered promising. He loved teaching, he used to say that sharing his experience and passion with young people was his way of thanking for the great gift he received, namely his voice; it was also a means of perpetuating his visceral love for music, transmitting it to other people.
Today, the Foundation carries on Maestro Pavarotti’s activity following the same path he has traced, offering opportunities and visibility to the young up-and-comers of opera, also trying to make the course of study and training accessible to everybody.
“Voice is like a wild flower, it can grow everywhere. We must search in all places, even among stones”.
“Opera should be everyone’s heritage.”
