  • This is Carducci's House while he lived in Bologna as director of Literature Faculty. So, you just go in and see his house. It's better to go there on first Sunday of every month because the entrance ...  read more »
  • I attended a guided tour organized on the occasion of the Sundays at the Museum (first Sunday of the month) and I discovered a place full of history and humanity. The House reflects on one side the figure of Carducci as it is full of books and testimonies of his life, of his character and of his thought, the other is a picture of the houses of the late nineteenth century. The guide was very good at explaining in a short time the place in relation to the character. The thing that struck me most, apart from the huge amount of books, is the lack of bath. The Guide explained that at that time was the bedroom that doubled as the bathroom. The Council, as he told the Guide, read up on the figure of Carducci before visiting his home.

  • The House is in a historic building and is so named because it was the residence of the poet. The poet lived there for 17 years, until his death in 1907. Today it is home to a cultural Institution dedicated to him which includes the historic house with garden and monument, the library with more than 35000 books and the archive. The Museum collects objects and documents of the poet and operates as a Centre for specialized information on his works. Many details and curiosities recreate the atmosphere of a late nineteenth-century middle-class residence: floral painted ceilings, terrazzo floors, hand-painted wallpapers, canopies of usci. Among the many memorabilia there is the Chair where Garibaldi rested, convalescent, after injury had on the Aspromonte and a fragment of the tunic of Petrarch. Undoubtedly an interesting visit. On the ground floor there is the Museum of the Risorgimento and which is also worth a visit.
