Palazzo Orlandi

Built in Neoclassical style by the architect-painter from Busseto Giuseppe Cavalli, who also decorated the main hall. Verdi bought this in the early days of the fortune he had accrued, in 1845, and lived here from 1849 to 1851 with Giuseppina Strepponi, generating scandal among the conformists and temporarily breaking relations with Antonio Barezzi for a free life, to devote to relationships and the children that Giuseppina had had in her youth. It was here that the Maestro composed the operas Luisa Milier, Stiffelio and Rigoletto. In January 1867, his father Carlo Verdi was to die here.
