Villa Pacchierotti Zemella – The great singer’s last refuge

0
In 1808, one of the most famous celebrities of the time decided to retire to private life in this 16th-century villa. We are talking about Gaspare Pacchierotti. Although his name may not mean much to most people, he was a star in his own time, known throughout Europe and a favourite of Napoleon Bonaparte, so famous that he was invited to perform at the opening of La Scala in Milan in 1778 and at La Fenice in Venice in 1792, and whose fame was partly due to the fact that he was one of the last castrato singers in history. In 1808 he bought the building that still bears his name and wanted to be buried there, in the Oratory of the Assumption that he had built.
