Lucca and the land of Puccini

This route leads to the discovery of Lucca in the footsteps of the great composer Giacomo Puccini lived and here he composed his greatest works. It starts from the historical center of Lucca and from such places as the Birthplace Museum Puccini [currently not visited in] the church of St. Paulinus, where he was baptized by the composer, the Teatro del Giglio, the main theater of the city and where the teacher performed many times and finally the coffee Simo, historical coffee Fillungo, attended by Puccini and other famous people as evidenced by a plaque inside. From the center we move towards the sea at Torre del Lago where you can visit the house of the Master, where he composed some of his major works [Madama Butterfly, La Bohème, Tosca, some parts of La Fanciulla del West, La Rondine, and Il Trittico] and where within a consecrated chapel, lie his remains and those of his household from the sea to the mountain pass. Puccini often stayed in Bagni di Lucca has always been a meeting place of artists and intellectuals, and where, in 1909, composed part of the second act of La Fanciulla del West. There is also a story of Puccini in Borgo a Mozzano telling him driving his car, for a wager, he tries to cross the Bridge of the Devil. But as the bridge was narrow, Puccini came to a point where he was forced to turn back, despite his disappointment, losing the bet
