Antonio Fassino (Tenor) (Piobesi Torinese 1874 - Padova 1913)



He sang in the chorus of Milan and Turin. He started his career as baritone (1901). Later he switched to tenor, making his second debut at the Politeama Armandi in Asti as Pollione in ‘’Norma’’. It Happened the next year. In 1904 he performed at the Teatro Donizetti in Bergamo as Alvaro in ‘’La Forza del Destino’’. In 1906 he undertook a big South America tour with very successful appearances in Montevideo (Teatro Urquiza) and Rio de Janeiro (Teatro Victoria). In 1908, together with P.
