P. Giorza
Paolo Giorza (11/11/1832 - 04/05/1914), an Italian composer and musician; born in Milan, Italy, died in Seattle. Having studied first with his father and Enrico La Croix, at the age of 10 Paolo won a scholarship to the Royal Conservatory of Music, Milan; Luigi's political activities, however, forced the family to move to nearby Desio. Eventually Paolo heard Rossini's Mosť at La Scala, Milan, and his destiny was determined. The first of Giorza's more than sixty ballets, Il Giucatore, was performed at Canobbiana theatre in 1853. His next ballet, Un Fallo, opened at La Scala, in September 1854. He later worked in Venice, Vienna, London and Paris.
