In the first period there were important operas such as the Faust (the opening day), Rigoletto, La Cavalleria Rusticana, the Barber of Seville, Boheme and Tosca.

This place is near Ferrara, Italy, exactly in Aguscello, a small fraction of the city known to most of the local people only for the tradition, and testimonies about one the most sinister and haunted in Italy.
