We were really keen to visit here and learn more about Leopardi. The town was celebrating his birthday this weekend. When we arrived at the museum we were told there was no English guide. In the shop too no books were available in English so sadly we were left to rely on the Internet

It was amazing to see the great poet's library with 25,000 books. His family still... More
