“Verdi's birthplace”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

This is the small, modest house in which the great composer was born in 1813. It's not really in Busseto but rather in Le Roncole, a tiny village nearby. It is a simple place where Verdi spent his childhood. Although he later went to Milan for a number of years, he always felt a special connection to his birthplace. This is affirmed by a sign across the road from the house, which quotes him: "Sono e saro' sempre un paesano delle Roncole," -- or -- I am and always will be a country boy from Le Roncole. For Verdi fans only, the house is definitely worth seeing on any tour through this area. For others it will have no special appeal or significance.
