Il Turco in Italia, one of the most famous comic operas by Gioacchino Rossini composed on a libretto by Felice Romani. After a cold reception at the Teatro alla Scala in August 1814, it will be wait until the spring of 1955 to attend, always in the room designed by Piermarini, a historic performance with a portentous Callas in recreating and indelibly marking the role of the flirtatious Fiorilla. As Eugenio Montale wrote, “that score has parts that will always be cited as an example of Rossini’s miraculous brio.
