We are pleased to announce that we have launched an important joint project with the La Scala theatre, the world's most famous opera venue and one of the most prestigious ambassadors for Italian culture throughout the world. The La Scala theatre is a symbol of innovation, technology, tradition and an international attitude. We think this reflects our own philosophy, and that the La Scala theatre shares the values LaCimbali is founded on. The partnership involves our backing for the exhibition called Madama Butterfly, l’Oriente ritrovato. Foujita e Asari per Puccini, showing at the La Scala Theatre Museum, Milan's second most popular museum after the site of daVinci's Last Supper, from 12 November 2016 to 28 February 2017. The collaboration will continue throughout 2017, and will also see the installation of top of the range LaCimbali machines inside the theatre and the museum, important locations in Italy's cultural life. LaCimbali will also work with the MUMAC in developing and organising joint events and initiatives.
