Rossini National Museum
Museo Nazionale Rossini tells the life, man and greatness of the artist but also the relevance of the work of Gioachino Rossini, an illustrious citizen of Pesaro who gave him birth on February 29, 1792.
Visitors are invited into Rossini's world, told as an opera, a musical metaphor for his intense life. A fascinating journey, divided into ten rooms, which follows the biographical stages of the composer and the boundless opera production of his career, set from time to time in the historical context, between places and characters (relatives, masters, entrepreneurs, singers, musicians, politicians , rulers).
The museum is the narration of a long artistic and sentimental journey, one of a kind, engaging, dramatic and full of curious anecdotes; of a life lived as a melodrama at the same time serious and comic, painful and amorous, with fiascos and furious successes, between revolutions, political restorations, theaters, salons, great personalities and intellectual upheavals, between enlightenment, neoclassicism and romanticism. An epic that crosses the cultural movements of Europe between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and is perpetuated today.
The protagonist is him, the great star son of an era that generated the first pop star ante litteram in European musical history: Gioachino Rossini.
The museum hosts temporary events and exhibitions dedicated to music of all times, its history and sound.
The Rossini National Museum is located on the noble floor of Palazzo Montani Antaldi, a prestigious building in the historic center, and is the spearhead of the great Rossini itinerary in Pesaro, City of Music, which also includes the Rossini Theater, Casa Rossini, Palazzo Mosca - Civic Museums , the Tempietto Rossiniano, Palazzo Olivieri and the Library of the Rossini Foundation (located on the ground floor of the building).
