This is the home where Toscannini was born. It is beautifully kept, has good displays and friendly, knowledgeable staff. It takes about 45 minutes to go thru.

Since Toscanini didn't live here long, the house is not the main attraction, but it is full of photos, information, and videos about the man. We had an excellent guide through the museum, and his enthusiasm added a lot to our visit.
