Villa Verdi, also known as Villa Sant’Agata, has been the residence of great Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi for 50 years.
The historic villa is located in Sant’Agata, in Villanova sull’Arda, near Piacenza.
In this house, surrounded by the peaceful Po Valley, everything has stayed the same as Verdi has left it. In Villa Verdi the maestro found inspiration to compose some of his most important works, such as Rigoletto and Falstaff, and spent his days dedicating himself to his passion, farming.
It is possible to visit the most significant rooms of the house, where Giuseppe Verdi and his wife Giuseppina Strepponi spent their lives. These rooms are still decorated exactly as they were during the composer’s life: the private chapel, the bedroom with the deathbed donated by Hotel de Milan, the carriage house and the cellar.
Villa Verdi is surrounded by a big Romantic park, full of trees.
