Ferdinando Provesi

Ferdinando Provesi (Parma, 1770 – Busseto, Parma, 1833) was an early tutor of Giuseppe Verdi, regarded as one of the greatest Italian opera composers. Provesi, a native of Parma, Italy, began teaching Verdi in 1824, when Provesi was the master of music at the cathedral in Busseto (a town not far from the village where Verdi was born).
