Visit the Pavese Museum and places

Fondazione Cesare Pavese houses  the Pavese Museum and organizes guided tours to the house where Cesare Pavese was born (2-hour tour) and, upon request, to the workshop-house of Nuto. While waiting to visit them in person, you can dive into Cesare Pavese’s world watching Io vengo di là (I come from there), the 3-season series we produced on some of the key places related to Pavese’s life and works. 


Autonomous visits (museum only)

In weekdays, during our opening times, you can autonomously visit the Pavese Museum and the adjacent desecrated Church of Saints James and Christopher, where Cesare Pavese got baptized and where we currently set up our exhibitions. Here are also permanently displayed 5 large-size canvas on The Moon and the Bonfires by Ernesto Treccani. 

Guided tours (museum + birthplace + Nuto’s house)

In the hours below, after a tour of the museum and the church, our guides will accompany you to the house where Cesare Pavese was born (2-hour tour) and, upon request, to the workshop-house of Nuto, Pavese’s long-time friend featuring in The Moon and The Bonfires (3-hour tour).
