Anton Pann’s way of living, always thinking of verse, of writing, of the print, or of music, and the little interest and resources shown and invested in his personal comfort ultimately made the house not stand out through its decorations or architectural style. As a matter of fact, no personal objects, nor many material traces were left from him; yet we were left with a living and rich language, poetically and specifically articulated in thousands of verses and writings and many musical compositions.
