Luciano Pavarotti's Modena

Logo CC

The life of this great personality is forever intertwined with the City of Modena, and the Luciano Pavarotti’s Modena excursion is designed for those who want to learn more about a great artist and consummate professional. 

This excursion is divided into two parts, each linked to a special aspect of Pavarotti's life.

    Art & Culture
  • Target
  • First stop - Parco Novi Sad Modena

    If you arrive in Modena by car or train, you’ll find yourself near the Novi Ark Archaeology Park and its ample underground parking structure near the city center. Here, from 1992 to 2003, Pavarotti & Friends concerts were held, a series of very special recitals that were especially important to Pavarotti as an opportunity to raise funds in his own hometown for needy children all over the world.

  • Second stop - Piazza Grande Modena

    Continue on toward the historic center and to sites that still testify to the presence of Pavarotti: the Cathedral of Modena, where Pavarotti’s funeral was held and in which the entire community participated; and the Sala del Vecchio Consiglio in the Palazzo Comunale where a video was shot of a performance by Luciano Pavarotti, his father, Fernando, and the Rossini Chorale. 

  • Third stop - Luciano Pavarotti Theater Modena

    The excursion continues at Teatro Comunale Pavarotti-Freni, where Pavarotti cultivated his talent and achieved his first successes.

    In October 2017, on the tenth anniversary of Pavarotti’s death, a beautiful bronze statue was dedicated in his honor nearby on Largo Goldoni. The statue of Luciano Pavarotti by sculptor Stefano Pierotti stands to the right of the Teatro Comunale. Pavarotti appears as he famously saluted the public at the end of every concert: his arms spread and his signature white handkerchief in his hand.

  • Fourth stop - Luciano Pavarotti House and Museum Modena

    The second day begins at the Luciano Pavarotti House and Museum, where Pavarotti spent his last years. Located just outside the city, the Pavarotti House and Museum is an extraordinary place that brings the great Master to life, retracing his story in the intimate atmosphere of the rooms in which he actually lived.

    Get in touch with Pavarotti’s human side as you admire his personal possessions and discover his everyday habits, as well as with the personality of the great artist through photos, videos, and a display of the famous costumes that marked his career. For an even more engaging experience at the Pavarotti House and Museum, there’s both a guided tour and a series of special and exclusive events organized there, such as recitals by young opera singers accompanied by live piano.

  • Fifth stop - Montale Rangone's cemetry Modena

    Finally, you can pay your respects to Modena’s great tenor at his grave in the Montale Rangone Cemetery, a few kilometers from Modena. Spend a few moments in homage to him for what he did for music—and for so much more.
