Retrace the life of the great composer from Bergamo at the Donizetti Museum
Via Arena, 9, Bergamo
Life, works and personality of Gaetano Donizetti in a fascinating journey between music and personal memorabilia.
In the upper town, behind Santa Maria Maggiore, walk along the silent Via Arena until you reach the Domus Magna: here, on the first floor, is the Donizetti Museum, opened in 1906 to honor the memory of the great composer from Bergamo.
Gaetano Donizetti is presented through the exhibition of portraits, objects of private life, letters and autographed scores, following a thematic itinerary divided into different sections, from origins to death.
A fascinating journey, including interactive sound stations for listening to Donizetti's opera, which will allow you to get to know the genius of opera from a personal and human point of view, through his words and his music.
To conclude this journey in the life of the Master, you can complete the visit by going to the birthplace, in via Borgo Canale, and to the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, where his remains are kept.
