GAZZANIGA, Signora, vocalist, born in Voghera, Sardinia, in 1825. She studied in the Milan musical conservatory, and made her earliest appearance in 1844 at the opera-house in Venice. After various engagements in the principal cities of Italy, she married in 1850 the titular Italian marquis di Malispina. During the year 1857 she came to the United States, and appeared in Philadelphia on 23 February with an Italian opera-company. On 13 April she performed in New York City, where she at once became a great attraction, and retained her popularity for several years. But afterward, when younger artists had replaced her, she was left to the representation of parts of secondary importance. Gazzaniga successfully taught vocal music for several years in New York City and Philadelphia, and then, with a competence, retired to professional obscurity in her native land.
