This retirement house was founded in 1899 by Giuseppe Verdi to offer shelter to former indigent musicians. This is, as the Maestro used to say, the most beautiful work by Verdi. The statue on Piazza Buonarroti, at the entrance to the house, is that of the composer. At the bottom of the courtyard of the villa are the remains of Giuseppe Verdi and his second wife, Giuseppina Strepponi. Inside, one of the rooms is decorated with Arab furniture offered to Verdi during the representation of Aida in Cairo in 1871. In the Council Room, the hand and face of the Maestro and his personal piano are kept in the hands of the Council.
