Overlooking the square featuring the monument to Giuseppe Verdi, this very nice palace was built between 1895 and 1899 at the express wish of Verdi, who commissioned the design to Camillo Boito brother of the famous librettist Arrigo. Foundedas retiirement home for struggling musicians and singers. The architectical style used was the Romanesque-revival. In the coutyard you can see the crypt containing the tombs of verdi and his second wife.

I didn't really know this place. We ran into it while we were going to City Life buildings. We've been lucky because the resting house was open, it is closed for most of the days. The guide was an italian volounteer very friendly and helpful. The upper rooms were closed due to a concert, but we had plenty to see. Verdi's grave is beautiful, must see it.

Verdi's home and final resting place. Now used as a retirement home for elderly musicians. Verdi's statue stands outside but since restoration no longer looks at the house but towards La Scala. At the time of his death bodies were supposed to be buried in consecrated ground but Verdi had other ideas and as usual got his way.

it is easy to get to Casa Verdi - it is next to the Buonarotti metro stop. Access to the lovely garden and the tombs is free - just ask the person at the entrance.

My travel guide didn't mention much of anything regarding this place, and yet, as an opera lover, it was unthinkable that I come to Milan and not pay my respects at Verdi's grave. I went in the morning of the day that I was going to La Scala, so it seemed particularly fitting. It's very easy to get to: take line 1 in the direction of Rho Fiera and get off at the Buonarroti stop (http://subway.umka.org/map-milan/line-1/buonarroti.html). You will get off at the piazza dominated by Verdi's statue and the Casa di Riposo should be across the street (it's hard to miss.) Once you pass the entrance, a straight path through a little garden with benches leads to Verdi's mausoleum, where is buried next to his wife, Giuseppina Strepponi. The visit is completely gratis. The resting place is tastefully decorated as if the Gods and muses were looking down and watching over them. Not many visitors come, so you very well may be alone, as I was, but that's more a mark of the average tourist's ignorance and in no way reflects the sanctity and importance of coming here.
