In the whole house, the walls' bright colors as well as the materials - for example: the natural wood of the floor, the ceiling beams - were expressly chosen by Pavarotti. In this wide living room Maestro was used to sing, teach and spend time with family and friends.
The Steinway grand piano often accompanied the auditions of promising students to whom Maestro gave free singing lessons. He believed that sharing his experience and passion with young talents was the best way to thank God for the great gift he received, his voice.
Here is displayed the tailcoat Maestro wore during concerts or recitals, now part of his iconic image.
Welcome ! - Room 1 (2015) by Luciano Pavarotti FoundationCasa Museo Luciano Pavarotti
Original autographed letters from Puccini, Verdi and other great musicians catch visitors' attention: they are part of the private collection Maestro enriched over the years and he was very proud of.
On the table are displayed some objects related to his performances: for example, the notebook where Maestro wrote the list of his performances, completed with the score he used to attribute to himself at the end of each show.
There is the bent nail, considered by Maestro a talisman of good luck: in fact, at the beginning of his career, before a masterful performance, he found a bent nail in the backstage and attributed to it the origin of his fortune.
