In 1981, the Swiss photographer Eric Bachamn and the journalist Christian Kammerling travelled to Italy to document the remarkable ‘Casa di Riposo per Musicisti’ founded by Giuseppe Verdi in 1896. Casa Verdi is a book that put together a beautiful report of retired musicians and opera singers who find themselves penniless in their sunset years.
The full bleed photographic spreads are a beautiful representation of their biographies and lifes. The rooms are charming pearls, full of memories and magic stories.
