  • Organized by a friend in Milan, stayed on their "programmed" in this magical place. The Giuseppe Verdi retirement home for Artists, where he lies next to his beloved, is anything but a shelter. Accompanied by a guide, we visited the salt and the Museum with memorabilia from the artist, we met the guests who came or were taken in so many things. A part is dedicated to the guests "enticed" but there are also good people who help young people to prepare for the exams, which sound singing and doing odd jobs to spend time. Exciting when entering a room, our guide asked a lady mentioning a lyrical piece ... creepy ... The guide told the story of Verdi that was designing this House, of its existence, the last days of life and important legacy that did for his fellow artists. Great music man and humanity. Recommend a guided tour of this magical place.

  • Every time I come here I get an indescribable feeling, always intense and unchanged. I believe that would happen though not liked so much Giuseppe Verdi, because his human and artistic greatness arises and requires above all other considerations. Affected not only visit him, but feel in the air the vital spirit of his art and that perpetuated by many musicians and singers today. The building, built in 1899 by Camillo Boito, gives his side of emotions, with its Romanesque style that already speaks the language of Art Nouveau and then an important historical phase of Milan.

  • It is a principle of shudder at the idea of visiting a nursing home. Of course the thought of slipping into a volunteer and comfort of strangers is not the common conception of a day of free time to spend. The Giuseppe Verdi retirement home, however, is another thing. There are elderly people who spend their time inside the structure, but there are also words that Giuseppe Verdi himself wrote after strongly desired the creation of this place and that are contained on the site of the House: "my work, what I like most is the House I had built in Milan to greet your old singers not favored by Fortune or owned by young the virtues of savings. Poor and dear companions of my life! Believe me, friend, that House is really my most beautiful work. " So a visit to this place is a worthwhile experience and useful. Inside the structure there is the crypt and the tomb of Giuseppe Verdi and his wife, but also a lot of memories and stories of the life of the great artist. And maybe after visiting the thrill that runs along the back of satisfaction and emotion.
