The resplendent Carlo Meliciani commanded major baritone roles at La Scala from 1959 to 1980.

He also recorded the role of Don Carlo in Verdi’s Ernani in 1969 with Plácido Domingo in the title role.

Away from Italy he sang in Barcelona, Athens, Philadelphia and Connecticut. As a teacher he numbered Luca Salsi among his pupils.

He died last week in Empoli.
