The Birth Place Museum Toscanini

toscanini birthplaceThe house where the great conductor Arturo Toscanini (1867-1957) was born is situated in an unpretentious part of Parma across the river from the centre and represents one of the symbolic places in memory of the Maestro even though he lived there for just a few months.


It was donated by the heirs of Toscanini to the city which renovated it and made it into a museum in 1967. It contains mainly artefacts from the musician's residences in Milan in Via Durini, and at Riverdale in the United States.


The exhibit, set out in the form of a house/museum, includes musical folios, a number of personal items belonging to the Maestro, curios, paintings, announcements, drawings and photographs. In a specially equipped room it is possible to listen to some of Toscanini's most celebrated performances.


A Bechstein piano belonging to the opera singer Aureliano Pertile, to whom Toscanini was very close, was recently added to the collection. Other artifacts connected the life of the musician can be found in the furnished studio at the "Arrigo Boito" Music Conservatory in Parma.
