Casa natale di Giacomo Puccini

Casa natale Giacomo Puccini-photo:www.puccinielasualucca.com

Giacomo Puccini was born in this house in Corte San Lorenzo, where he spent his childhood until he moved to Milan at the age of 22. Like many members of his family before him, Puccini worked as an organist in the nearby church of San Paolino, in which his first orchestral composition, the Messa per Quattro voci was performed on July 12th, 1881.

Today, the house is a museum managed by the Giacomo Puccini Foundation in Lucca, containing many personal items: furnitures, awards won by the maestro, the Messa a Quattro voci (1880), Il Capriccio Sinfonico (1883), and a rich collection of letters written by and received from the composer, his wife Elvira, his son Antonio, and his publisher Giulio Ricordi.

His last great opera Turandot is evoked by the presence of the Steinway upon which he composed it in his house in Viareggio.
