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...More

The visit is mainly the library and some family history. As the current family live upstairs its guided tour only. And to preserve the books no tours if its humid. Worth buying the dvd giovane favoloso to see the history. Wine for sale below.

It is worth visiting Palazzo Leopardi , the home and Library of the Italian poet and thinker Giacomo Leopardi, a not so well known major influence upon Arthur Schopenhauer and other early XIX C. German philosophers.Tour guides in german and engludh available.

A visit you will never forget. The Leopardi family runs the foundation and properties like if Giacomo and his family were still there. All you knew about the poet's life is probably determined by myths and partial truths..the guide will introduce you in a piece...More
