A stone's throw from La Scala is the house of the author of I Promessi Sposi (Les Fiancés), the founding literary work of the modern Italian language. The house of the fifteenth century where Manzoni lived from 1814 to 1873, welcomed Verdi (which will dedicate to him a mass of Requiem), Garibaldi and Cavour; it is now a museum devoted to the writer. Bathed by a quiet atmosphere, the poetic universe of Manzoni is penetrated: his cabinet, with a library of more than 3,000 pounds, the music in the piano and his bedroom with a garden view, whose décor seems to be in harmony with its austere character. Among the preserved objects there is curiosity: Marie Antoinette's latest embroidery work in Temple Prison.
