Puccini House Museum Opens in Lucca

By September 15, 2011

Follow me on:

Giacomo Puccini was born on December 22, 1858, in Lucca where he spent his childhood. With much fanfare, his restored native house opened to the public on September 13. Visitors walk through the small house, restored in the style of the mid-nineteenth century. On display are manuscripts of his operas as well as other memorabilia. Fans of Puccini and opera find the house of great interest.

See Puccini House Museum for visiting information. Through November 15, concerts are held every evening at 7PM in San Giovanni Church - see Puccini and his Lucca.
