Antonio Barezzi was like a father to Giuseppe Verdi, before becoming his father-in-law. He was one of the first people to believe in Verdi's attitude towards music and gave him help to fulfill his talent. That's why what was once his house is now home to the museum which collects all the portraits of the famous musician as well as the newspaper articles about him. The tour guide told us all about Verdi's life and his relationship with Barezzi and we found it interesting.

We were delighted with all the Verdi memorabilia we could see here. We had been told not to miss it by friends and were glad it was open. We did it on the combined ticket I recommend you buy. Birthplace, Opera House and here. It has excellent signage, is well curated and was a key part of our enjoyable Verdi day. The exterior is one of the best buildings in Bussetto.

This gives a fascinating insight into Verdi's life. One can understand why he moved out of Le Roncole and lived here at the age of 10. The more you know about Verdi and his life, the more one can draw from it. Most of the drawings, pictures and exhibits are fascinating. Don't miss the drawings of Verdi's funeral as the sheer scale of the thousands thronging the streets is awesome. This is included in the tourist ticket.

And not really for us. It is mostly a collection photos and letters associated with Verdi. No English labels and no handouts when we were there. Probably best if you are a true devotee.

Whether you choose to go through this museum will depend on the depth of your interest in opera in general, it's history, and in Verdi in particular. On the one hand there is not really a lot to see in the home of an upper middle class citizen of his time; on the other hand, if you know the importance to Barezzi to the history of opera it is a must see. Indeed, we were quite moved going through, especially upon seeing the piano upon which Verdi personally played and composed. Although historical speculation is always nothing more than just that, it is quite reasonable to assume that were it not for Barezzi, his compassion and his gift as a talent scout, we would not have had Verdi's operas, and the world would, indeed, be far poorer for that. So if your not particularly interested in opera and its history, I would skip this, especially if you on one of those tourists primarily interested in checking off landmarks from your list. But if you love opera as many do, you may find yourself close to tears from this moving experience.

Spent hours there, and with my 14 year old daughter, a budding musician and pianist, who also found it fascinating. Inspired me to learn more about the Italian master and his times.

A truly interesting museum in Barezzi's former house, with Verdi's piano and lots of Verdi memorabilia. A must for any visitor to Busseto interested in Verdi.
