Francesco Bossi from Bergamo builds the reed organ
Giuseppe Fortunino Francesco Verdi is baptized
Luigia Uttini Verdi, hiding on the bell tower with the son Giuseppe in her arms, saves both from the looting of the Austrian and Russian troops.
After being initiated to music on the organ “Bossi”, at the death of his teacher Pietro Baistrocchi, the young Verdi is appointed organist of the church.
Under the supervision of Verdi, the organ builder Tronci from Pistoia restores the organ for free. Maestro Verdi's last visit takes place on Sunday, October 21, to attend the Vespers accompanied by the restored organ.
