What if we were to tell you that the great-great-grandfather of the composer of Turandot was also named Giacomo Puccini? And if, among other things, he was maestro at the Palatine Chapel of Lucca, where Luigi Boccherini performed as a solo cellist? Poetry, letters, stories, and anecdotes acquaint us better with a great family of composers, who have contributed so much to music from the eighteenth century to the modern day, always bringing powerful emotions to the stage.
