    Z is for Zero-to-51

    with Jacopo Ghilardotti

    Donizetti’s life was full of misfortunes; his three daughters died in swaddling clothes, and his wife was killed by cholera. After a stay in a mental asylum, and three years of severe illness, he returned to Bergamo in 1848 and died the same year, at the age of 51, as a guest in the residence that is today Palazzo Basoni Scotti.
