Teatro alla Scala
Most of Italy's greatest operatic artists, and many of the finest singers from around the world, have appeared at La Scala Theatre in Milan. It is regarded as one of the leading opera and ballet theatres in the world and is home to the La Scala Theatre Chorus, La Scala Theatre Ballet and La Scala Theatre Orchestra. The theatre also has an associate school, known as the La Scala Theatre Academy and a Foundation as well, Milano Per La Scala Foundation, established in 1991 by a group of private citizens and companies from the Lombardy region.
Since 1999, the employees of the Foundation have supported the development projects initiated by Mani Tese in the South of the world through the Payroll Giving method, that is, by donating a monthly share of their salary.
