The Arena of Verona is a Roman amphitheater located in the city of Verona, Italy, known for the opera productions that are performed in it (Festival of Verona). It is one of the best preserved structures of his style.
The building was built in A.D. 30. in a place that was then outside the city walls. The Ludii (shows and games) that were staged in it were so famous that the spectators used to come from many other places, sometimes very distant. The amphitheater has a capacity for 30,000 spectators.
The facade was originally made of white and pink Valpolicella limestone. After an earthquake in 1117, which almost destroyed the outer ring (with the exception of the so-called Ala), the Arena was used as a quarry for other buildings. The first interventions that were made to restore its functionality as a theater were carried out in the Renaissance.
Thanks to its impressive acoustics, the building lends itself to concerts, a practice that began in 1913 with the first edition of the Verona Festival. Today about four operas of the standard repertoire are produced every year, between June and September. In recent years there have also been numerous light music concerts by Italian artists such as Umberto Tozzi, Claudio Baglioni, Tiziano Ferro, Adriano Celentano, Gianni Morandi, Laura Pausini or Il Volo, but also international ones such as Roger Waters, Paul McCartney, Elton John , Duran Duran, Adele, Spandau Ballet, Deep Purple or Sting.
It was the place chosen by the Tour of Italy to finish the test at least three times. Francesco Moser was proclaimed winner of the Giro of the year 1984 thanks to the victory at that stage, which was held against the clock, and the Giro de Italia 2010 also ended with a time trial in that last stage. This time the winner of the stage was Gustav Larsson, but he did not change the leader like 26 years earlier. On June 2, 2019, Richard Carapaz was proclaimed champion of the Giro d'Italia 2019 in the last time trial held in Verona, with the end of the stage at the Verona Arena itself. Carapaz has become the first Ecuadorian to win a great international round ..

The Verona Congress was held from October 20 to December 14, 1822 in Verona, attended by representatives of the Quintupe Alliance formed by the original members of the Holy Alliance (Russia, Austria and Prussia, sep. 1815) at which includes Great Britain (Nov. 1815) and France (Nov. 1818), which had recently restored the Bourbons to the throne.
The congress was convened after the liberal revolutions of 1820 in Cádiz, Porto, Naples and Turin; as well as for the independence of Greece and Latin America. Among other issues, the issue of the liberal revolution in Spain was discussed, where the request for support presented by King Ferdinand VII to end it was announced. Who was interested in the subject was France that sought to restore its prestige and raised the desirability of an intervention. The other powers opposed the unilateral intervention of France because they did not want him to reinstate his control over the Iberian Peninsula again and from there to extend it to the American colonies. For this reason, Tsar Alexander I of Russia proposed a collective intervention to neutralize the French initiative, but for this, his troops would have to cross all of Europe, to which all other countries flatly refused. Britain, being a parliamentary monarchy, refused from the beginning any intervention; and although Austria and Prussia were in favor of the intervention, they had neither the troops nor the money to participate in it.
The Austrian plenipotentiary minister, Metternich, then proposed that the five powers simultaneously submit formal notes to the Madrid government announcing that they would intervene in Spain if they did not redirect their radical policy and that they had to release Ferdinand VII. The British government refused to participate in the intimidation and withdrew from Congress and the French refused to send the diplomatic note, because it maintained the expectations of making the intervention alone.
Finally, Austria, Russia and Prussia agreed on November 18, 1822 that they pledged to support France in its intervention in Spain if any of the following three cases were met:
If Spain attacked France directly.
If the king of Spain was dispossessed of the throne or if his life or that of the other members of his family was in danger.
If there was any change in the line of succession of the Spanish royal family. For its part, Britain alone informed France in April 1823 that it would not oppose the intervention if Paris met three conditions:
That French troops would leave Spain as soon as they achieved their objectives.
That France abstained from any interference in Portugal's internal affairs (because Britain had promised to defend it).
That France made no attempt to help Spain recover its colonial empire in America.France accepted British conditions and decided to intervene in Spain without complying with the conditions of the absolutist monarchies of Austria, Russia and Prussia, beginning the Invasion on April 7, 1823, when the One Hundred Thousand Sons of St. Louis entered Spain, shortly reaching Seville and then Cádiz, where he achieved the freedom of Ferdinand VII, who as soon as he was free from the liberal Courts, ignored everything who had dictated and established their absolute sovereignty. Thus begins in Spain the Absolute Decade, known as the Ominous Decade by the Liberals.
