    I was lucky enough to volunteer at this beautiful work and, therefore, to visit. It's a retirement home for musicians ordered by Giuseppe Verdi. worth walk about around: sometimes it comes out celestial music:)

    Green House is a retirement home where they find welcome artists no longer young, commissioned by the great Maestro Giuseppe Verdi, which hosts the mausoleum and a small collection of memorabilia. The visit is really exciting and allows you to better know the intimacy of what was a real pride of the emerging Italian nation. Unfortunately the two little rooms where it was a museum are not always visible, so I advise you to inform you at the infopoint in Milan what days of presence of volunteers Touring Club; in any case, just go to the master's grave to pay homage to him it will be worth it.

    The greatness of a man is measured by what it leaves to whoever succeeds him. Giuseppe Verdi was a great musician and a great man. His artistic creations testify to his greatness as a musician, this place his greatness as a man. In Milan, in Piazza Buonarroti, stands an impressive building in neo-Gothic style took a few years before his death from Giuseppe Verdi to accommodate a nursing home, so he wanted to be called and no shelter, for singers and musicians whose fortune was still economically. You can visit just a few rooms of the House, obviously, so as not to disturb the tranquillity of our guests, but in rooms open to visitors can feel the presence of the great master. On the ground floor, two rooms with memorabilia and furnishings that belonged to Greens which bear witness to the personality, on the first floor the Hall of honor and the Arab Hall, opposite the main entrance, at the bottom of the garden, the crypt, built after his death, decorated with beautiful mosaics created by master glassmakers of Murano, where lie the remains of master and his second wife Giuseppina Strepponi.

  • Used primarily as a rest house, at certain times of the week you can go to visit the tomb of Giuseppe Verdi. The only flaw is that they use volunteers do at the expense of staff hired and paid.
