Sandro Massimini Operetta Museum

The Operetta Museum is named after Sandro Massimini, the most famous Italian interpreter of this art form, and is located in a palace in the center of Torre Cajetani.

In addition to his own collection he collected theatres with puppets and hand puppets made since 1600.

Operetta had helped change the face of Europe by the early twentieth century. The story of the museum is spread along an arc of more than hundred and fifty years of operetta.

There are stories from the most illustrious personalities of the Italian spectaculars such as Wanda Osiris, Carlo Dapporto, Walter Chiari and Sophia Loren.

In an audio-visual room, you can see the most famous and representative performances.
