Verde and his Environs

Today we traveled to area where Verde lived and did much of his work. Once he became an established composer, he built a house and took 40 years to complete it. He also acquired large amounts of land to farm.

An unusual sundial on the side of his home.

A theater was built in his honor in his home town, but he never went into it because he thought the money should be spent on schools instead. In fact he appears to have been quit a philanthropist as he funded a home for retired musicians in Milan.
