Enrico Nani (Baritone) (Parma 1873 - Rome 1940)




Originally a student of literature, he subsequently studied singing with Antonio Cotogni and made his debut in 1899. His career covered all of Italy, including La Scala, as well as at the Teatro Colòn in Buenos Aires and in St. Petersburg. His repertoire included the principal baritone roles in scores of operas, including ‘’Tosca’’, ‘’La Gioconda’’, ‘’Otello’’, ‘’I Puritani’’, ‘’Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg’’, ‘’La Dannazione di Faust’’, ‘’Siberia’’, ‘’Aida’’ and ‘’Salome’’. He was to have visited the U.S. in 1924 as leading baritone with a touring company directed by Mascagni, but the venture didn’t come to pass. Instead, Nani decided to retire.
