Palazzo Scotti

Palazzo Scotti

Description

In the street named after maestro Gaetano Donizetti, stands the building where he spent the last days of his life: Palazzo Scotti. The rooms that hosted Donizetti are located on the first floor and are frescoed with neoclassical style works by painters Camuzio and Bonomi. The testimonies of his life collected here were then donated to the Donizetti Museum, especially the furnishings of his rooms such as the armchair, the bed and blanket and the piano that the composer himself had bought for the Basoni in Vienna in 1844. Remaining, to remember Donizetti’s presence, a painting by Giuseppe Rilossi where Donizetti is portrayed at the end of life, and a plaque, outside the building, with the inscription "Gaetano Donizetti - died in this house - April 8, 1848".


A curiosity: This Palazzo hosted other illustrious personages from Bergamo, such as

Giovanni Roncalli, then St. John XXIII, when he was the Apostolic Nuncio or Cardinal of Venice returning to his hometown.
