This small room (perhaps that of Giacomo Puccini), with decoration of the walls, in tempera, which simulates a tapestry (school of Francesco Bianchi, second quarter of the 19th century), is where the study of the composer has been reconstructed, with a mahogany desk (first decade of the 20th century), a desk chair and other original furnishings.

A singular statue in plaster (late 19th century) portrays the composer, with a dedication on the pedestal “To Giacomo Puccini with affection”, and a symbol “ P K”.
