“Poverty gave birth to a genius”

Casa Natale Donizetti
Ranked #72 of 168 things to do in Bergamo
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 May 2012

You will be shocked to see the miserable house in which one of the greatest composers was born. Two rooms in the basement, without any windows, dark, gloomy. Donizetti was born to a very poor family of workers. It was only some years after his birth that his farther made some money and moved to a proper house. It is really quite amazing how a genius could be born in such a shabby place. And on the top floors there is now a little theatre and an exhibition dedicated to Donizetti's life and creations.
