In Verdi’s lifetime the whole of Italy could hum an aria by the composer of Nabucco, La Traviata and Rigoletto. The great Maestro sought inspiration in his living space: ‘The room has to be spacious, bright, elegantly furnished and have every practical comfort’. In 1872 this suite became his home. Being 674 steps to La Scala, audiences cheered Verdi back to the Grand Hotel et de Milan. On the first night of his opera Otello, Verdi stepped onto his balcony to acknowledge the wild applause, his tenor joined him and gave a spontaneous encore.
Natural light floods into these rooms through dramatic ceiling high French windows leading onto three large balconies. There’s a fireplace lounge, two bathrooms and a connecting ensuite bedroom. Recently restored the interior blends discreet modern tech with historic details, Verdi’s personal desk holds pride of place.
