  • 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.

  • Giuseppe Verdi believed that his most beautiful work was the retirement home for old artists not favored by luck or by young people did not have the virtue of savings, which he had built. A gem, a place full of peace, culture and music. Beyond the pleasure of meeting during the visit some guest of the retirement home, is exciting to visit this site on hearing the notes of a piano! Already the front of the building is important and valuable, the inside is even better. You can see the paintings that made up the collection of the artist including a copy of Titian's "Venus of Urbino", some personal items, the first spinet on which he played, the clothes they wore on the day of his death. Environments that you can visit, still used by guests of the retirement home, are: the concert hall or holidays (where even today the House guests can enjoy concerts), the living room where they can spend their time, Oriental style room where you placed the last piano played by the great master (since it was no longer used by anyone). In the wonderful garden leads to the crypt where it rests the master with his second wife Giuseppina Stripponi. A special thank you to the volunteers of the Italian Touring Club, which, with their availability, enable visiting this place memorable.

  • I love going there. Thursday afternoon there are concerts by the students of the Conservatory. Is a parallel world. Culture and refinement while outside is raging the chaotic traffic and bustle caciarone in Milan.

  • Thanks to Giuseppe Verdi, who founded this retirement home for musicians in need.

  • 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.
