Amintore Galli

Amintore Galli, composer (1845-1919)

He was born in Talamello (or perhaps in Perticara) in 1845. His uncle Pio Galli, director of the city band, was his first teacher. After attending the Gymnasium in Rimini, in 1862 he enrolled in the Milan Conservatory and graduated in 1867. In 1866 he fought with Garibaldi in Bezzecca. From 1871 to 1873 he stayed in Finale Emilia, where he directed the city band and the municipal school of music. He returned to Milan as art director of the “Stabilimento Musicale Sonzogno” and as music critic for the newspaper "Il Secolo". In 1894 he bought a small estate in Santa Maria in Cerreto, on the hills of Rimini, to spend the summer holidays there. In 1906, after buying an apartment, he returned to Rimini. Here he died in 1919.

Amintore Galli was a music critic and a teacher. Very keen on music, he composed music for operas, vocal and instrumental music. In 1886 he composed the “Hymn of the workers”, on words by Filippo Turati.

The ancient theatre "Vittorio Emanuele II" in Cavour square was then entitled to him. Today the Galli theatre, designed by the architect Luigi Poletti, has reopened its door to the public after recent restoration works which tranformed it into a kernel of beauty.
