The expectations were very high: the beautiful building of one of the most famous Italian poets was reduced to a couple of small rooms, the library and a museum with museographic concepts of the Eighties the absolutely exaggerated cost (18 euros) compared to many other cultural institutions far more generous in terms of assets

The sensation of wandering around Giacomo Leopardi's birthplace is really great, the visit to the library is very engaging. Too bad that the guided tour is very fast and with little information it is the feeling that the groups have to leave immediately from the House this is not very nice

If you’re into cultural visits and you pass by Recanati you cannot miss this. The actual house Leopardi grew up in, with things such as desks and books he worked and read with. This is just amazing, not entirely sure if they have English tours but the Italian one is amazing. The people who work there are passionate and you can tell they love their work. Great place which you cannot miss

If you are a fond of Italian literature and of Italian Philosophers who have questioned themselves about the purpose of life and their sense of being in our universe, then you must absolutely stop at Recanati and visit Giacomo Lepardi's house and home town. I have been pleasantly surprised by what I gained from this experience. Recanati, houses a museum with multimedia devices that take you on a journey in Leopardi's world; his home gives you an understanding of the environment in which he grew up, how social events and mutations, Scientific discoveries, Religion and Art influenced him. I highly recommend a visit and after this going again through his portfolio.

Very interesting museum of Giacomo Leopardi in Recanati. One room is dedicated to G. Leopardi and other to local artist. His casa has his portrait and face mask. Entrance is by gratitude. Beautiful breathtaking view is from the garden outside his house. Only it is not maintained very well, spiders nets and faded walls in both rooms of this exhibition. We came before the sunset and view on Recanati and its surroundings were incredible.
