Appropriately enough, soon after moving here Opera Chic discovered that Milan's most insanely expensive -- and impossible to get unless you're super plugged-in, think Park Ave co-op -- real estate quietly lies in Via Mozart. And oh how it makes us happy that our beloved Mascagni has been awarded choice real estate here, and even a forgotten genius like Antonio Caldara got himself his big boulevard here. Luchino Visconti has a tiny little street adjacent to cool Corso Garibaldi, a few minutes walk from la Scala. Via Verdi leads you to la Scala itself (Puccini lived there his last, very rich years). Even Victor de Sabata has his little plaque, in a small side passage off of Via Verdi. Now, if only they gave Alexander Zemlinsky his well-deserved street, it'd all be perfect.
But sometimes quirky classical music lovers do surprise you, and name streets after artists you'd never imagine could get such honors: friend of Opera Chic Tim Mangan, running errands, discovered that somewhere in Orange County, it has been seen fit to honor Isaac Albeniz with a street:
Just inside the gated community that Albeniz leads into are a cluster of streets named for Spanish composers, including Granados, Rodrigo (he must still have been alive when they named it), Sarasate, Torroba and Turina.
Maybe Zemlinsky Lane is right around the corner, let Opera Chic mapgoogle it...
