Famous Georgian poet Titsian Iustine Tabidze lived in this building in 1921-1937.
In his student years he took active part in the foundation of a literary group called “Tsisperi Khantsebi” (Blue Horns) and the edition of a magazine under the same name. The founders of Georgian symbolism were his close friends whom he met while studying in Kutaisi Gymnasium.
T. Tabidze was the member of the Council of Georgian Writers’ Union. In 1937 Tabidze was arrested and charged with revolutionary activities and on 15 December he was sentenced to death with seizure of his private property.
Today the building houses Titsian Tabidze’s museum.
