The AMO – Arena Museo Opera is a museum in Verona dedicated to Opera, the theatrical and musical form of art for which the Arena theater nearby is world-famous.

Building and site
The museum was opened in 2012 inside Palazzo Forti, a 5,000 square-meter building founded in the Middle-ages located in the heart of the city, at short distance from the Arena and the famous Piazza delle Erbe. The building still retains some of the remains of the ancient Roman constructions it was built on.

What to see at AMO
The permanent exhibition at the Arena Museo Opera focuses on the complex process that, from the preliminary concept to the final staging, lies behind the production of an opera performance. The exhibition is divided into 7 sections, dedicated to “librettos”, music scores, preliminary sketches, set design, famous singers, and final staging.
The AMO museum features multimedia exhibits, original music scores, photographs, set designs, posters, costumes and historical documents related to some of the greatest performers and authors of the Italian Opera from the 19th century to the present day, including Giuseppe Verdi, Giacomo Puccini, Gioacchino Rossini, among many others.

Additional services and activities
The museums also periodically hosts temporary exhibitions of art and music, conferences and special events. The Forti palace includes a gourmet restaurant.
