Ca’ d’Oro, the gallery that made their grand appearance in 2010 with the iconic larger than life pink snails during Art Basel Miami Beach, has recently relocated from Coral Gables to the epicenter of luxury, the 4141 Building in the Design District. In conjunction with Giuseppe Verdi’s Bicentennial and as a celebration, Ca’ d’Oro Gallery will open its golden doors on Friday, October 11th, 2013, from 7pm-9pm, with a group exhibition Homage to Verdi and offer to Miami a unique once-in-a-lifetime experience with a vibrant live classical music concert by the prestigious Camersití della Scala of Milan.

"We are very excited to move to the 4141 Building and form part of the renaissance of the Design District. This is Miami's future as the arts, fashion, and design destination," says Gloria Porcella, co-owner and curator of Ca' d'Oro Gallery. “We will continue to supports the arts in Coral Gables, a place we are grateful to have called our home for three years.”

Homage to Verdi is a moving and engaging memorialization to one of the most important composers in Italian history, Guiseppe Verdi (October 10, 1813–1901). Curated by Gloria Porcella and Lamberto Petrecca, the exhibition highlights the works of 32 contemporary artists - spanning from Romero Britto, the pop artist Leonardo Hidalgo, award winning composer-artist Alfredo Rapetti Mogol, Monica Casali, eco-friendly artist Erika Calesini, Daniela Pasti Augias, Sasha Torrisi, Gloria Sesana, among other members of the artistic Ca’d’Oro extended family.

The year 2013 is an auspicious time for Italy, for it is also marks “The Year of Italian Culture in the United States” and in this stellar alignment the Italian Consulate-General in Miami and with the support of Classical South Florida, the grand opening will be accompanied by a live musical performance by the Camersiti della Scala of Milan, who will be seducing the guests with an exclusive program, absolutely unique in the international music world. It contains “Fantasie” from Verdi’s operas, composed in the 19th century by Italian important composers, sometimes Verdi’s friends and coworkers. These pieces, gifts, and celebrations to the greatness of the composer were lying forgotten and without an editor in world libraries. Thanks to the Camersiti della Scala, they are now discovered and played for the first time in our modern times. Viva Verdi!
