She premiered a role in Bellini's "Norma" at 20, in 1831, at La Scala in Milan; Balzico sculpted a plaster of her for his monument to Bellini, this in 1874, about five years after her untimely death of injuries from a train accident. He worked from paintings and photographs, and possibly a live model as well. I worked from the plaster which I photographed in November 2017 in Rome. I photographed La Scala opera house in Milan in November 2016 (yes, that's the same interior she sang in).
