Wagner at the Palumbo

In the spring of 1880, Elisabeth invited her friend, Richard Wagner, and the scene designer Joukonowhy to spend a few days at the Palumbo home. It was actually during his stay at the Palumbo that, walking around Villa Rufolo, he exclaimed, “Joukounowhy, we’ve found it! This is Klingsor magic garden!””

Testimonial signed by Wagner about the hospitality received from the Palumbo Family.
