Puccini had several residences: Torre del Lago, Boscolungo, Chiatri, Tower's Cut (Orbetello), and Viareggio but always remained tied to his hometown.
Museum House, has been completely restored while the original interiors and the original furniture have been replaced. The "Museum Apartment" hosts precious objects that have belonged to the musician, including a Steinway & Sons piano on which he composed the opera Turandot, autographed scores of early compositions (the first work, the orchestral Prelude found in 1999, and the Mass for 4 voices of 1880), and many letters of Giacomo Puccini, paintings, photographs, sketches, unique and valuable documents such as drafts and working copies of the booklets of "Tosca" and "La Fanciulla del West".
