Napoleon Moriani

The famous tenor died at seventy in Florence, his birth place. This artist fascinated irresistibly the public with the passion of his singing. For those who heard him in Lucia and Lucrezia assured us that they were moved to tears. The major Italian and European cities fought for the service of this outstanding artist. The maestri competed to write for Moriani. Nobody tried to sing the distinguished part of Rolla after him. Moriani was an avid reader; had noble and kind sentiments, good heart; all that knew him loved him and he will missed by all. Il Trovatore, 11 March 1878
