With the approach of summer, the concerts at the Arena di Verona resume in full force, in addition to the lyrical offerings of the Opera Festival. Cutting the ribbon last weekend was “Una nessuna centomila,” an event in which famous Italian artists took turns on stage to raise donations for anti-violence organizations. However, this year’s schedule will include a variety of Italian performers, including Ludovico Einaudi, the 2024 Music Awards, and the international singers of Il Volo.

Il Volo

The next appointment is with the group Il Volo, who will bring “Tutti per uno” to Verona for four evenings on May 9, 11, 12, and 13. Piero Barone, Gianluca Ginoble, and Ignazio Boschetto, accompanied by a symphony orchestra and other guests, will play a repertoire of Italian classics with innovative arrangements. They won the Sanremo Festival in 2015 with the now-famous song “Grande Amore” and have released songs in Spanish, English, French, German, and Latin.


On May 14, Annalisa will perform “Tutti in Arena,” a show in the Arena di Verona that will realize the artist’s goal of singing in the anphitheater. Throughout her career, she has sold over 3.5 million copies nationwide, making her the most successful Italian artist during the FIMI era. She received various honors, including a Global Force Award at the Billboard Women in Music 2024 (the first time an Italian singer has gotten this honor), an MTV Europe Music Award, five Music Awards, and more.


The following day, on May 15, Irama will perform in the Arena with his most recognized songs. With 47 platinum records, 4 gold records, almost two billion streams, and over 900 million views for his videos, Irama recently performed at the 2024 Sanremo Festival with “Tu no,” a song that captures the feeling of absence and distance in its entirety.


Gazzelle, an established indie artist, will make his Arena debut with a concert on May 16. The event is part of Gazzelle’s “Dentro X Sempre Tour,” which will take place on March 8, 2024, and will feature performances of songs from his latest album “Dentro,” as well as the Sanremo song “Tutto Qui,” which she wrote and composed with Federico Nardelli.

Antonello Venditti

Gazzelle will be followed by another Italian music legend who wrote the soundtrack for a popular film among high school students of all ages. Antonello Venditti will perform “Notte prima degli esami 1984-2024 40th anniversary” on Sunday, May 19, marking the 40th anniversary of the album “CUORE,” which features iconic Italian songs. “Notte prima degli esami” is the soundtrack of the film of the same name, which depicts the story of a group of friends preparing for their high school graduation test. The film explores love, friendship, and 1990s society.

Ludovico Einaudi

The concerts will then return in July with Ludovico Einaudi. Ten years after the memorable summer 2014 concert and just over ten years after the release of one of his most significant and beloved albums, Ludovico Einaudi returns to the Arena of Verona on July 10, with the echoes of “In a Time Lapse,” to reimagine them in a new way with a new instrumental ensemble.

Music Awards

Then, the Music Awards, a music festival that has been going on since 2007, will take place on July 13 and 14. It will include some of the most famous Italian musicians, many of whom are well-known worldwide. Carlo Conti and Vanessa Incontrada, who have been hosting the event together since 2012, will be back as the presenters.

Claudio Baglioni

Another Italian music icon closes off the 2024 list. Claudio Baglioni and the Arena of Verona celebrate the anniversary of their meeting. A union founded fifty years ago, based in the history of a city—a symbol of passionate love for all time—and hosting the outstanding outdoor event of the artist, whose performances have delighted countless Veronese nights. Baglioni will performe on September 19, 20, 21, and 22.
