The Museum

Gabriele d'Annunzio's childhood home is on the main street of the ancient city of Pescara, and it was contained in a military fortress which was demolished when the poet was a child.It was declared National Monument in 1927 with a Mussolini's decree, urged by d'Annunzio himself to ensure his childhood home under State protection.  Gabriele d'Annunzio was born in this house on March 12, 1863.He lived there until he was eleven when he moved to Prato to carry on with his studies. He sometimes returned to Abruzzo to visit his mother, who had remained alone in the house. The visit of the museum starts on the first ground of the building, in a journey through the first five rooms that immerse the visitor in a XIX century's home atmosphere, with period fittings, furnishings and paintings: a casket of memories and living from Poet's childhood. 
In the second section of the Museum we find the poet's wardrobe, a slice of fashion from those years which he followed in an original way. The visitor can admire the red coat worn during hunting or horse-racing and the original golden sandals worn during the summer. In the next room there are precious first editions of his works, illustrated with xylographs. It follows the disturbing setting up with the moulding of poet's hand and face, realised strictly on his corpse just after his death by his friend the scultor Arrigo Minerbi, the night of March 1, 1938. Lastly in the room of the soldier Poet room we find war relics, period photos, illustrative panels of war exploits and general uniforms.
