Carlotta Ferrari

b. 1837, Lodi, Italy; d. 1907, Bologna, Italy

Italian composer and poet Carlotta Ferrari lived mostly in Bologna, where she taught piano, wrote, and sang. Ferrari authored the librettos for her own operas (Ugo [dramma lirico, 4], 1857; Sofia [dramma lirico, 3], 1866; Eleonora d’Arborea [dramma lirico, 4], 1871), as well as the texts for her composed songs. Her poetry—which deals with patriotic and dramatic themes—and prose work were collected in the four-volume Versi e prose (1878–82).
