An exclusive experience of MI EXPERIENCE, to revive an ancient tradition of noble salons ..

"Let us free ourselves from the sweet thrills that love arouses, since that eye goes to the omnipotent heart."


Is there anything more exclusive than the Prima della Scala? Yes, enjoy an opera privately in the Villa, as was the custom in the noble salons of past centuries.


A truly exclusive event, framed by the splendid Villa Sormani Marzorati Uva, a late 17th century villa that still preserves the original rooms of the typical 19th century noble Villa di Delizia.


The Calendar, with 4 appointments, will take you back to the end of the 18th century. A journey through time, returning to that tradition that saw artists perform in the Villa before in the great theaters, in front of a small audience of gentlemen and ladies. A unique and priceless emotion, savoring the work a few meters from the protagonists.


Villa Sormani is now recognized as a relevant Cultural Pole of the Territory; we believe that the love for beauty, art and culture should be the way to go to build a better future.


The Opera in Villa revives, in the rooms of the Villa unchanged over time, the Great Italian Musical Tradition, with national actors and musicians who have lent their talents in major international theaters.


The costumes, original, are also woven by one of the official costume designers of La Scala.






  • 3.30 pm - Chapel of Santa Maria in Villa, Welcome by the landlord
  • 3:45 pm - Music Room: Beginning of the Opera
  • 17:00 - Refreshment in the Villa. The Master Pastry Chef Emanuele Comi will prepare, in homage to the various works on the calendar, typical sweets using the recipes of the time, from the Sicilian Cannoli of Cavalleria Rusticana to the sweets kept by Casa Verdi for La Traviata.

An exclusive MI EXPERIENCE experience to relive an ancient noble tradition, dedicated to all opera lovers who wish to rediscover a lost contact with the theater.
