Here Puccini gives birth to most of his operas: Manon Lescaut (1891), Bohème (1896), Tosca (1900) Madame Butterfly (1904), The Girl from the Golden West (1910), La Rondine (1917), Il Trittico (1918). Puccini will later leave Torre del Lago only because a peak factory will be built  in the middle of the lake, destroying the environment, so that he will move to Viareggio, where he will start his last work, Turandot: this will be left incomplete because of his death on the 29th November 1924 in Brussel, after a throat operation. His remains rest in the chapel built inside the house of his beloved Torre del Lago.
