The Puccini Museum

Visit the composer’s summer residence

Pescaglia
The Puccini Museum is situated in the sixteenth century building in the centre of town where Giacomo Puccini’s family originally came from. The museum presents not only the house furnished just as it was with the original utensils and tools used in traditional farming culture, but also on the piano nobile there is a display of items which belonged to Puccini himself – donated by the maestro’s grandchildren. Visitors can see the bedroom where Puccini was born, his piano, a phonograph donated by Edison, a selection of manuscripts of his works (Le ville, Edgar) and also several old records, including a few Japanese examples.
