4th Symphony Inspiration

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky wrote: "Venice is an awe-inspiring city. Everyday I come across something new and fascinating... I think I fell madly in love with this graceful maiden!"

In December 1877, on one of his visits to the graceful maiden, great Russian composer stayed at the Londra Palace Hotel, where he composed the first three movements of Symphony No. 4, originally entitled ‘Do Leoni’.

Today, the room 106 - in which this masterpiece was created, feature many pictures and souvenirs left to the Hotel by the Russian government, and in April 1982, the City of Venice embedded a stone plaque in the Londra Palace's façade to commemorate this event.
