Overview

Pesaro is located about 40 kilometers south of Rimini and is the birthplace of famous composer Giocchino Rossini. He left behind a legacy in opening a musical school in the city. Since 1884, the conservatory has been housed in the historical Palazzo Olivieri. Its fresco interiors include the Sala delle Colonne, the Sala dei Marmi and the so-called Tempietto Rossiniano—a room displaying letters, documents and objects related to the life of the composer (for this last room, book the visit in advance). The large concert hall, named Pedrotti Auditorium, was built in the same palace in 1892. A bronze statue has been placed inside the main courtyard to commemorate the composer. - Maria Frullini
