Carlo Broschi, known as Farinelli (1705-1782), the most important castrato opera singer of all time, rests in a straightforward monument. Of noble origins, he
was guided into the music world as a small boy. Having notched up success all around the world, he chose Bologna (where he had performed several times
throughout his brilliant career) as the place where he would spend his old age after retiring.
