Giacomo Puccini born in Tuscany

Giacomo Puccini
Giacomo Puccini was born this day in the Tuscan town of Lucca in Italy, the fifth child of Albina Puccini and her husband Michele. His father died when Puccini was six and his mother struggled to bring up the seven children in the family. He grew up to become one the greatest operatic composers of all time, the creator of Madame Butterfly, La Boheme, and Turandot. (By John Osborne)
