Find out more about La Scala Milan, the world famous home of Italian opera where Verdi, Puccini and other great composers first had their works performed.
The word 'scala' just means 'staircase'. The theatre was built on the site of the church of Santa Maria della Scala – Holy Mary of the Staircase. Apparently a sick child had once been cured because its mother put a statue of the Virgin on the landing.
