Vincenzo Bellini was one of the most famous composers of the nineteenth century.

He was born in Catania on November 3, 1801.

He began at an early age to write his compositions; he studied in Catania and Naples.

Great melodist, he obtained the first great success with the opera "Bianca e Fernando".

He moved to Milan and staged "Il pirata" in 1827 and "La straniera" in 1829, obtaining great success.

He was then in Parma with the opera "Zaira" and then returned to Milan where he wrote some of his most successful works: "La sonnambula" and "Norma" in 1831, and "I puritani" in 1835.

In the same period he composed for La Fenice theater in Venice I Capuleti e i Montecchi.

Then he moved to Paris, where he met some of Europe's greatest composers, such as Fryderyk Chopin.

These experiences allowed him to enrich his music.

He died becouse of an intestinal infection on 23 September 1835, when he was only 33 years old.

His body remained for forty years in the Père Lachaise cemetery, near Chopin and Cherubini; in 1876 it was taken to the Cathedral of Catania, where it still stands today.
