Lina Scavizzi (Soprano) (Ascoli Piceno 1898 - ?)

                                               with Apollo Granforte in ''Tosca''

She made her debut in 1919 at the Teatro La Fenice of Venice as Giorgetta in ‘’Tabarro’’. The next year she sang at the Teatro Comunale in Cesena as Francesca in F.  Zandonai’s ‘’Francesca da Rimini’’, which counted as one of her star roles. In 1924 she  undertook a very successful Australia tour. She sang the role of Francesca in 1927 at the Teatro Carlo Felice in Genoa as a partner of Giulio Crimi and Carmelo Maugeri. In 1927 at Switzerland she appeared as a member of Max Sauter's opera troupe.  She retired from the stage during the early 1930’s.
