"E' stato inaugurato oggi, nel giorno del suo bicentenario, il mezzo busto in bronzo raffigurante la figura di Giuseppe Verdi. Alla cerimonia hanno partecipato il parroco della basilica di Santa Maria Assunta, il sindaco Giuseppe Bellandi, l'assessore alla cultura Bruno Ialuna e Valentino Pieri, presidente della Fondazione Credito Valdinievole che ha finanziato l'opera.

Il busto di bronzo raffigurante il celebre compositore poggia su un base di travertino raffigurante un pianoforte, strumento prediletto del maestro Verdi. Tutta la struttura presenta una leggera torsione, che simboleggia - come ricordato dal curatore dell'opera Paolo Bellucci - “il disequilibrio della musica”. La base, in basso, presenta anche tre piccole strisce di colore azzurro acqua.

La scultura si trova nei pressi del caffé Gambrinus ed è rivolta verso piazza del Popolo."

Giuseppe Verdi

"Giuseppe Fortunino Francesco Verdi (9 or 10 October 1813 – 27 January 1901) was an Italian opera composer. He was born near Busseto to a provincial family of moderate means, and developed a musical education with the help of a local patron. Verdi came to dominate the Italian opera scene after the era of Vincenzo Bellini, Gaetano Donizetti, and Gioachino Rossini, whose works significantly influenced him. By his 30s, he had become one of the pre-eminent opera composers in history."
