The home continues to flourish more than 100 years after it was founded for retired musicians living in Italy. Composer Giuseppe Verdi called the rest home he started for poverty-stricken musicians in Milan, Italy the finest of his life's work. More than a century after its founding, Casa Verdi is still thriving today, offering retired musicians ongoing concerts, music rooms, pianos, drums, harps, gramophones, and -- perhaps most important -- the company of their peers. NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Christopher Livesay reports.
