Bass-Baritone Luca Pisaroni on the culture of opera in Italy

There is no denying that politics and the economy have caused major problems for the arts in Europe, but to hear an honest account of the cultural climate in Italy from an internationally acclaimed opera singer, who was born and raised in the same town as Giuseppe Verdi, really helps to put things into perspective.
