Beniamino Gigli: "the Voice" of Belcanto, from Recanati to Hollywood!

Beniamino Gigli: "the Voice" of Belcanto, from Recanati to Hollywood! | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

The Marche is not just a Region with beautiful and pristine landscapes; it is also the homeland of internationally renowned artists. And it is actually in Recanati that Beniamino Gigli was born on March 20, 1890. [...]

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

The story of Beniamino Gigli is the beautiful story of an incredible, talented voice with a bitter end.
After World War II, the Allied officials banned his singing in a concert on the grounds that he had had Fascist connections.
This senseless stain has prevented Italy, even if not the whole world, to offer the right memorial tribute to one of his greater sons.
Gigli admitted he had sung for the Fascists and Germans but said he never had any interest in politics.
The Allies hired without problems former Nazi scientists after the war but the voice of Gigli could not bring anymore the beauty to the world
In 1955, after a 16-year absence, he returned to the United States to sing in New York's Carnegie Hall.
As the biggest stars of heaven shining even more brilliantly before drastically fading all in a few hours, Beniamino Gigli died less than two years later.
