A century after the death of Enrico Caruso (1873-1921) and a few years after the 150th anniversary of his birth (1873-2023), the Associazione Nazionale Case della Memoria (Houses of Memory National Association), to which the last
home of the great tenor belongs, promotes, together with other member houses, the programme “In the name of Caruso”, a series of events designed to remember the great tenor. The initiatives will be held in collaboration with the European Network of Famous People’s Houses and the Associazión Canaria de Humoristas Gráficos y Caricaturistas. With the support of ICOM Italy and the committees ICLCM (International Committee for Literary and Composers’ Museums) and CIMCIM (International Committee for Museums and Collections of Instruments and Music).
