CASA-MUSEO GIOACCHINO ROSSINI
The two storey house is quite small and it has been preserved in an excellent way. The family of the famous composer Gioacchino Rossini lived here for a long time. Gioacchino's father lived here till 1790, then he moved to Pesaro. As he came back, the house had been occupied by another family so they moved into another house in the same area.
The facade of the building carries a memorial stone in honour of Gioacchino Rossini, with a latin inscription; inside the house it's possible to see some documents which testify the relationship between the composer and the town of Lugo.
The house often hosts art exhibitions.
