Villa Pallavicino Review

Busseto's main claim to fame is its native son, master composer Giuseppe Verdi (1813–1901), whose bicentennial was celebrated last year. The 15th-century Villa Pallavicino is where Verdi worked and lived with his mistress (and later wife) Giuseppina Strepponi. Recently renovated, it displays the maestro's piano, scores, composition books, and walking sticks.
