    My artistic inspiration by the greatest Opera Diva of all time became the beginning of a magical journey that aims to revive her legend. Monaco was the place she loved, the place she felt free and the place she had deep relations. Let’s make together that ode to her an unforgettable experience, and keep her star always bright.
