The Apartment â€“ Where the Opera started (14th of January 1573)
The name of the apartment Florentine Camerata is due to the fact that in the 16th century the â€śCamerata Fiorentinaâ€ť used to meet in this apartment, which was the palazzos theatre during the Reinassance. The Florentine Camerata was a group of scientists and constituted by the Bardi Count and other scholars of musical theory, among whom was Vincenzo Galileo, father of Galileo. They created new musical principles, merging music to the 33rd â€śCantoâ€ť of Dante Alighierios Inferno, giving birth to what is known now as Lyrical Opera. More info on this recognized monument of the Renaissance are on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florentine_Camerata. Still hanging from the ceiling of the theatre are the scenic machinery used at that time.
