The Isabella Scelsi Foundation houses the Casa Scelsi Museum, occupying 100 squared metres of the building and first opened to the public in 1996. The project derived from the express wish of the Maestro himself, who left not only his music, his poetry, and his writing, but also the place where he lived and worked for many years.
The apartment boasts an imposing panoramic view of the Forums. Inside, we find his piano (played by Scelsi the virtuoso and still in use), the legendary “ondiole”, the rare oriental miscellanea, the antique Tibetan trumpets (which were a souvenir from his travels in the Far East), and a copy of Dali’s celebrated diptych “Coppia con le teste piene di nuvole”. The original is in the Mart Museum of Trento and Rovereto. A beautiful flowered terrace gives visitors a charming view of Rome.
