									               2003 Almanac

                        e love to think to the news not only as to something to read day by
                        day, but also as something to remeber after some months or years.

               So, we decided to put on this Almanac every news we published on
2003 Almanac   Barovier.com during the last year, to remeber and to be remembered.

The Phoenix resurrected again. Finally, 8
years after the big fire that destroied the

full of events and concerts - from
Director Riccardo Muti to Elton John.
While we are really happy for that, we
can't forget that nobody has invited to
any event who - like us - contributed to
the reconstruction with 53 million lire in
1997, earned with an auction of Goti
d'Autore at Sforzesco Castle in Milan.
