Luciano Pavarotti: Tour the Maestro’s Home in Modena
Beloved by millions and mourned world-wide upon his death, Luciano Pavarotti was an opera icon and legend. His vibrant personality and generous soul made him beloved the world over. Opening his home as a museum is another gift he bestowed on the world. For opera fans or even the casual visitor this is a must visit destination.
Pavarotti chose his home in the beautiful countryside of Modena where he was born. According to the museum website, he personally oversaw the architects, carpenters, blacksmiths and other artisans who built this home and horse stables. The home still contains many of his personal effects; costumes from his favorite Opera roles are on display along with personal letters from famous friends such as Princess Diana, Grammys and other awards, visual and audio recordings, and the piano where he practiced and taught aspiring singers. A former elementary school teacher, he recognized the importance of teaching: “It is so important for people at a young age to be invited to embrace classical music and opera.”
His smiling image on the side of the home welcomes visitors, which is no surprise considering what Franco Zeffirelli said about him: “Luciano Pavarotti. If God hadn’t given him to us we would have had to create him by ourselves.” For visitors, this is a chance to have a cherished experience with Pavarotti one last time.
