from "TOSCANINI RETURNS"
Back in Italy after long exile, maestro conducts at La Scala
by Dr. Franco Armani, Director of La Scala
Amid cheering througs Arturo Toscanini last week returned to his native land, grasped a slim, red-knobbed baton and made the orchestra of Milan's great La Scala opera house play as it had never played since he left its helm 16 years ago. To music-loving Italians, for whom the white-haired maestro conducted a program of music by Rossini, Verdi, Puccini and Boito, the event was a solemnone. It meant that Italy's greatest musician, long a voluntary exile from Fascism, had at last made his peace with a Italian world of music.
The occasion for Toscanini's comeback was the reopening of Milan's bomb-damaged opera hause, whitch had been hastily repaired, with the help of the Allied Commission, at a cost of about $350,000. Toscanini paid for his trip to Italy, contributed $10,000 toward La Scala's restoration. Said he, shyly, "I wish people would consider it as if I had just gone away yesterday and come back today."
