Signed Document 1754
Stage name of Carlo M. Michelangelo Nicola Broschi (1705-1782), probably the most celebrated Italian castrato singer of the 18th Century and considered one of the greatest singers in opera history. Exceedingly rare legal document, related to the ownership of things in a property, signed at the bottom by Farinelli (as Carlo Broschi Farinelli), dated in Madrid in 1754, when Farinelli was indeed in Madrid (he served the Spanish court for 25 years). Document is written by another hand but signed at the bottom by Farinelli. One page of hand-laid paper, 8.25 x 12 inches, central fold, irregular borders, in excellent condition. Autographs of Farinelli as extremely rare and this is the first one we come across, ever!. To the best of our knowledge, the last time there was a Farinelli autograph in the market was at least 3 years ago, and this is also in great condition, with a fabulous signature.
