Palazzo Mazzolari Mosca – a new look

Palazzo Mazzolari Mosca, via Rossini, Pesaro

The imposing palazzo – commissioned by Antonio Maria Mazza – is the final product of several works carried out between the 18th and the 20th century.

It was built between 1736 and 1768 after the project by Giannandrea Lazzarini – with the collaboration of his pupil, Tommaso Bicciaglia, construction director.

After several changes of ownership, the Marchesa Vittoria Mosca – who was, among other things, a great collector – bought it in 1842 to host her collections.

Today, after restoration works, Palazzo Mazzolari Mosca is born anew.

Rossini’s birth place in Pesaro

The Mazzolari Mosca palace is almost exactly in front of Rossini’s birthplace and if you keep walking past Palazzo Mazzolari Mosca and, obviously, past Rossini’s house, heading towards the main square – named unfortunately People Square (sounds as if you were suddenly swallowed up into a satellite town of Moscow in the early 70’s, doesn’t it?) – you’ll find a nice bar on your right – Nerocaffè – where you get a good coffee and nice drinks (besides, if you go in with your little children, they even give your sweet “wild beasts” drawings and colors to keep them still!)
