Enjoy Salieri, the poisoned mineral water. Best served to award winners

Novocortex created this new brand of mineral water for delegates of advertising festivals. We noticed that during award ceremonies some delegates developed the same emotions as Antonio Salieri about Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. So, we decided to provide them with Salieri – the first poisoned mineral water in the world. Best served to award winners.

02 Read truth about Mozart and Salieri before poisoning anyone

Antonio SalieriAccording to Encyclopedia Britannica, “there is no foundation for the belief that Salieri tried to poison Mozart” – a legend that was used by Pushkin in his story, Rimsky-Korsakov in his opera and Forman in his movie. Antonio Salieri (1750-1825) was one of the most important and well-known musicians of his time. He was a teacher to many famous composers, including Ludwig van Beethoven, Franz Liszt and Franz Schubert. Watch one of his operas on YouTube.
