  • Is all this put together: a nice visit, intimate, peace and interesting from a historical POV. Seems like entering another dimension!

  • In our first attempt to visit this unusual Museum (retirement home for musicians with concert hall, practice rooms, etc), we were put off to the next day. There we were told then that the doorman had probably misled. So no visit of the Interior in this wonderful building, but only the concession, the tomb of the founder and sponsor Guiseppe Verdi and his wife to visit. But also the visit to this small, richly painted Tomb Chapel worth anyway.

  • When entering the Green House you walk into another dimension! The guests of the House blend perfectly with the environment! While you admire the artistic you are cheered by the voices and the music played and sung by guests. A lovely emotion!!!

  • A part of history and foresight of Maestro Giuseppe Verdi who wanted to help musicians in economic trouble arrived at the end of their career. Here is buried together with his second wife Giuseppina Strepponi.

  • ..where the notes even live. This is the most suitable place to begin a journey of initiation into musical history, conceived from an idea by one of the greatest Italian composers, Giuseppe Verdi. It's so surprising to hear through walls melodies, musical instruments kept in the rooms and the respectful guests elegance, how exciting is access to the crypt of the great master. Stop listening to the musicians ' experience staying at this place..
