ANDREA BOCELLI AT FIERACAVALLI 2016: "SOMEBODY SAID THAT BEAUTY WILL SAVE THE WORLD AND HORSES ARE TRULY BEAUTIFUL BEINGS" Verona, 12 November 2016. Andrea Bocelli opened the third day of Fieracavalli (www.fieracavalli.it, scheduled until tomorrow) by taking part in a parade through the streets of Verona, accompanied by Maurizio Danese, President of Veronafiere.
"Horses? I once said they were my passion, but it's actually a full-scale 'illness'!" And the famous singer added: "Horses are wonderful animals, great friends and help, as well as the best way to relieve stress by far." Andrea Bocelli does not hide the passion bonding him with the equestrian world - for which he has become an ambassador today: "The relationship between humans and horses goes back thousands of years," he went on. "History was written on horseback, as well as progress. We cannot ignore the fact that we once used horses instead of engines." Before reaching Piazza Brà in the saddle, Bocelli was welcomed the Spanish Equestrian Association to Fieracavalli, between traditions and Iberian breeds, his true passion, saying: "Somebody said that beauty will save the world and horses are truly beautiful beings."
