Rossini House – An eccentric landlord

0
The famous Gioacchino Rossini had his Bolognese residence built in Strada Maggiore, at today's number 26. The façade already says a lot about the eccentricity of the landlord. On the sides of the small balcony at the front door is the couplet: "Non dominus domo, sed dominus domino" (It is not the master who should be proud of his house, but the master's house). On the east side, instead, one can read: "Obloquitur numbris septem discrimina vocum inter odoratum lauri nemus" (Accompany the verses with the seven musical notes in the midst of a fragrant laurel grove).
