Discover his private collection of memorabilia, costumes and awards gathered throughout his long career. Join us as we celebrate the artistic and philanthropic legacy of the “man who moved millions.”
Discover Pavarotti at home
Every inch of this house reflects the vibrant personality of its owner. Warm light fills the space, from the soaring atrium – with cherished letters from friends like Frank Sinatra, Bono and Princess Diana – to the buttery-yellow kitchen. Exquisite costumes, unique memorabilia and countless awards pay tribute to his illustrious career – but it’s the everyday items in intimate rooms that reveal the man behind the scenes.
A storied place
Maestro Pavarotti oversaw architects, carpenters, blacksmiths and other artisans to build this villa, a tribute to Italian handcrafts, in his hometown of Modena. His love for horses led him to purchase this property since the ‘90s, where he built stables and paddocks as first thing. Right here, between 1991 and 2002, he hosted the prestigious CSIO show jumping tournament, which was attended by the most important riders of the equestrian world.
