Roncole Verdi
Giuseppe Verdi was born in this farmhouse of this small village of Busseto on October the 10th 1813. The Verdi's native house was declared a national museum after the Maestro's death on January the 27th 1901. The medieval Church of St. Michael rises just by the house, and it was here that the young Verdi started to play the 18th century organ. The church houses many paintings and frescoes from 14th to 18th century.
