Casa Rossini

Gioachino Rossini was born on the 29th of February in 1792 in Pesaro and it was in this city that he lived with his family for the first years of his life. A great part of the holdings is here thanks to donations; the most important one was gifted at the end of the 19th century by the famous Parisian collector Alphonse Hubert Martel. The shown pieces that for the most part are litographies, presses and recordings, provide evidence of Rossini’s life and masterpieces; they are all organized through the biographycal method, which is easy to understand for evrybody. The ground floor is completely dedicated to Rossini’s interpreters in the last moments of his life. The first floor instead is stored with almost 30 pressed portraits of the famous composer. This section also includes Rossini and other compsers’ parodies. The room, that is entirely dedicated to music, hosts the comper’s piano and some signatures of the famous Pesaro Swan. For all the lyric lovers, in a room in the basement of the house will be broadcasted several pieces performed at the Rossini Opera Festival.
