The Antica Casa Balsari was built in 1695 and is located in the main square of the town of Borgo Ticino, close to the Town Hall. Originally, the house was the home of the Balsari family, who were 18th century Pharmacists, later with a pharmacy overlooking Piazza Martiri.
During the fascist reprisals of 13th August 1944 the pharmacy was destroyed by German military forces and all the historical heritage of antique furniture and pharmaceutical prescriptions and recipes were lost.
To revamp the Balsari family’s passion for music, the building has been decorated with a musical theme, books and instruments.
Each apartment is a tribute to a renowned Italian composer to celebrate our Italian cultural heritage.

The Balsari family from Borgo Ticino is an ancient family dedicated to the study of nature and care. Ancient apothecaries first and pharmacists then, the Balsari’s have always played an important role in the social life of the town, making the house a place of culture and study. Graduated since the end of the eighteenth century, they have handed down the cult of study and knowledge at a high level. In addition, they had a great passion for music: it is for this reason that today the apartments – renovated for tourist use – are a tribute to famous Italian composers, and from this year the cultural activity was inaugurated with artistic events and conferences.
