BETWEEN WATER AND SAND
A place still alive, still inhabited, where discover the soul of the poet, immerse yourself in its lyrics and relive the excitement thanks to the available tour routes.
Palazzo Leopardi houses the precious library-museum. An exceptional library heritage, consisting of about 20,000 volumes, which has kept its original atmosphere unchanged over time. Here the immense culture and genius of one of the most loved poets and writers in the world were formed.
The visit is exclusively guided, takes about thirty minutes and is for a maximum of thirty people at a time. Entry shifts are established by the ticket office based on the turnout, arrival time or bookings made.
The private collections of the Leopardi family are revealed to the public in temporary exhibitions. Memories of childhood, personal objects, archival papers, manuscripts and books dear to the poet tell the visitors unpublished aspects of the work and life of Giacomo and his family.
The exhibition Giacomo dei libri: the Leopardi library as a space for ideas, currently underway, is dedicated to the history of the foundation of the Library and to the books loved by the young Leopardi. The visit path is autonomous, with no restrictions of duration or obligatory entrance times. It can be accessed at any time; the estimated time of visit is about thirty minutes.
House of "Silvia"
The visit to the house of "Silvia" offers the public a new key to reading poetry. An unusual change of perspective: no longer Giacomo looking at "Silvia", but the poet seen through the eyes of the young. The result is a journey into an unexplored world, between the eyes of the two boys, to discover the places and events that inspired the famous song.
The visit is autonomous, takes about ten minutes and is for a maximum of seven people at a time. Silvia's house is open only from Friday to Sunday and on public holidays. On other days it is open only by reservation for groups and schools of at least 20 people.
