The spring and summer of 1823 were spent at Castenaso, where Gioachino Rossini was able to give thought to the renovation of the palazzo he had acquired in Bologna’s Strada Maggiore the previous November, and to prepare for his forthcoming appearances in Paris and London. He and Isabella Colbran left Castenaso on October 20, stopping in Milan, where they received letters of introduction from the Duke of Devonshire to prominent members of London society. A letter to Artaria in Vienna, written in Geneva in November, requests the loan of a score and parts for Semiramide and hints at some kind of reciprocal arrangement regarding the new opera Rossini was planning to write in London. The following morning they began the four-day journey north to Paris.
