Visit the Pavese Museum and places

You can choose between an autonomous visit during our opening hours or a guided tour. Whatever your choice, reservation is recommended through the form below. 

If you opt for the first, you can freely 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. If you opt for the latter, 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)

Meanwhile 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.
