  • The retirement home for elderly musicians and singers, built in the early 1900s by master Roderick green in what is now piazza Buonarroti, holds the remains of his and his wife in a magical vault with walls liberty mosaics reminiscent of its most beautiful works. An atmosphere of peace and raccolgimento open to all every day.

  • First time for me in this "monument" to the music and a musician whose life is history I didn't know. I'll be there right past hundreds of times and last day I had a chance to come and visit an awesome venue. Headquarters and residence of retired musicians (give 70% of their income from retirees) and 20 young, visited the lounges, the Chapel and the crypt (the latter always be visited) where it rests the great teacher. Hear the story of his life from a voluntary guide Touring was a marvel. I discovered holding concerts open to the public with a very low ticket costs (€ 3/5). If you get the chance go and visit it, worth it really

  • Located in piazza Buonarroti in front of the bronze statue of the great composer. Historic building, you enter with the Guide. Halls whose interiors are richly decorated with the composer's objects including the spinet piano used by child, never used since his death; the paintings exhibited with his self-portraits, those to the subject. Seeing then the beautiful female portrait. Congratulations to the guide that expertise and engaging animosity has been able to explain the life of the great composer. Visible in the garden the crypt with tombs of Verdi and his wife.

  • There are no words to describe what the great Giuseppe Verdi has done in his life. His works, although very large, is still a minor part. The nursing home is the expression of the other side of a large green. The visit was made with an exceptionally prepared, as befits the role, but above all passionate which has exposed the man always willing to help the people both culturally and offering work and begging.

  • As stated by the composer himself, the great Giuseppe Verdi, this is his greatest work. Located in piazza Buonarroti, la Casa di Riposo per Musicisti-Fondazione Giuseppe Verdi, was founded in 1899 by the same master, who donated it before his death. The greatest work, as well as architecture, it is for the human gesture had towards his companions more unfortunate to him. In fact, from the beginning of 1902, has hosted more than 1,000 musicians and singers, who were, or are in difficult conditions, to rest and live quietly in their home. Lovely externally and internally. Visiting Italian Touring Club, accompanied by volunteers, you will plunge into an atmosphere of tranquillity, accompanied by mild music generated by the guests themselves. Admission is free, although it's a welcome offer. It is recommended a visit.

  • I only found out today that Giuseppe Verdi is buried here. In this retirement home of former musicians founded by him there is an air of artist. Absolutely worth visiting.
