“I have visited many muséums in my life, but none is like this one ! Many unique antique organs are displayed in the museum such as a portative organ by Carlo Traeri from 1686, a positive organ by Agostino Traeri from 1756, a superb Sicilian organ of 1771 by Gaetano Platania, and many others… The museum also documents the technological, stylistic and taste evolution of the piano, an eminent symbol of Western musical civilization with an Italian harpsichord of the 16th century, an 18th century Italian grand piano, and three grand fortepiano. And Dr. Lorenzo Ronzoni , who has been at the origin of the museum and who guides the visit, will make you love it , even if you are not a musician! I When I can I always bring friends to the Museo degli Organi.”
Feedback on Tripadvisor
It is a private museum and the only one in Italy of its kind. It was born in 2002 thank Dr. Lorenzo Ronzoni who donated his private collection to the Foundation of Santa Cecilia. The organs are dated between the XVII and the XIX centuries but there are also other instruments such as harpsichords and ancient pianos. There you will see rare examples of these instruments, coming from all over Italy. In addition you will also find information over the technological and stylistic developments of music.
