He said to me,” My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”2 Corinthians 12: 9
This city was the birth place of Pavarotti, the place he called home is about 8km out from its centre and from the cathedral he was buried.
“I was an elementary school teacher.”
“If children are not introduced to music at an early age, I believe something fundamental has been taken away from them.”
“Why should be elite, music? Excuse me. Music must be for everybody.”
“Opera is one of the most important art forms. It should be listened to and appreciated by everyone.”Luciano Pavarotti
Pavarotti himself admitted that he could not read music and routinely had difficulty remembering his lines but he had a winning personality, perfect diction and a strong connection with the humanity of the characters he was portraying. He also said some interesting things about his work.
The rivalry is with ourself. I try to be better than is possible. I fight against myself , not against the other.Luciano Pavarotti
He also said: ” People think I am disciplined. It is not discipline . It is devotion. There is a big difference.”
The day we were in Modena how appropriate it was that there should be an Autumn food festival. This is what Pavarotti said about food:
” One of the very best things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.” He also said this about love. ” If you know why you fall in love , you aren’t in love.”
His funeral was held in Modena’s Cathedral in 2007.
Thank you for looking at my post. Friday was so busy that I got it done this evening. I hope you saw a little of Pavarotti’s home town. Press on the link to hear Luciano Pavarotti sing :

Now this makes me want to visit this place sometime. Great images. Anita 😁
Yes,Modena was full of surprises. Thank you for liking the images.
Another wonderful collection of images! That Pavarotti statue is so joyful it left me smiling WIDE 🙂 I also really loved the apples/pumpkin picture and the rose window of the cathedral. Simply beautiful!
So glad you loved them . I am so eager to share these new found places. Roy and I don’t plan or read up we let places show themselves as surprises. We don’t even know where we are heading tomorrow.
