Gioacchino Rossini is born in Pesaro, in the Papal State, on 29 February of 1792 from a musician father (Giuseppe Antonio Rossini) and a modiste but with good singing dowries mother (Anna Guidarini).
The young Rossini began since he was a child to dedicate himself to music receiving singing lessons, spinet and horn (from his father), preferring Mozart and Haydin compositions things that gave him the nickname "Tedeschino" (Young German). He even began to compose some sacred musics and when he was 13 he obtained the first prize at the grammar school with the cantata " Pianto d'Armonia per la morte di Orfeo". At the end of 1823 Rossini closed his Italian career and went to London where he received large profits and gifts without writing any new Opera. On 13 November of 1868, at 11pm, Rossini died.
With a solemn funeral his body was buried in the cemetery of Père Lachaise beside Chopin and Bellini.
This is the house where Rossini was born.
The Rossini family lived in two rooms on the first floor.
Now it's home of a small museum where you can see objects and some memories of the famous music composer.
