To experience Verdi's music in the places of every day, from 1st to 9th December the pieces of the opera will be aired in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and in the ATM mezzanines of the Garibaldi and Cadorna stations.

The opening of the Prima Diffusa program will be on the evening of 1st and 2nd December in the courtyard of the Castello Sforzesco with a historical re-enactment that will bring the protagonists of Giuseppe Verdi's work back to life. Attila's Huns will face the legions of Ezio, the last brave Roman general who defeated the Hun in the battle of the Catalaunic Fields.

During the two days it will be possible to visit the Roman and the Barbarian camps, watch duels between Germanic warriors and games of skill among Huns knights, draw a bow with historical arches, follow the activities of the artisans engaged in forging iron and discover the origins of falconry. In the light of braziers, actors-narrators will recount the most mysterious passages of the life of Attila, who for twenty years held in check the two Roman empires but whose dominion after death dissolved like snow in the sun. There will also be many surprises for the little ones: from training to battle to archery, to the possibility of getting on a Roman chariot to experience the thrill of the gallop.

The Accademia Teatro alla Scala will stage an exhibition in different venues, each dedicated to a different technical-artistic department of the production of the work: costumes (Sale Viscontee of Castello Sforzesco), set design (Cine Teatro Delfino) and make-up (Spazio Tadini). There will also be exhibitions dedicated to the set sketches (Barrio's) and the flat sketches (MuDeC).
