how was buried Niccolo Paganini ??

  1. Niccolo Paganini, who during his lifetime was rumored to have sold his soul to the devil in exchange for the amazing gift of a virtuoso, died in Nice in May 1840 from throat cancer, without confession and soborozirovaniya. A few days before his death a priest came to him, but Paganini refused the sacraments. The bishop of Nice Domenico Galvano denied him a funeral service. Without funeral service burial was unthinkable. The body was taken to Paganini's homeland, to Genoa, but the governor forbade funerals. The coffin was transported from place to place, the son of a violinist went to Rome and begged Pope Gregory XVI to resolve the burial. It was said that at night the devils dance around the coffin, and the violin itself plays an eerie danse de macabre. Paganini's body was buried and dug several times. Only in 1929 year he found peace in the Genoese cemetery.
  2. I have a book "Condemnation of Paganini" Vinogradov some, there about his life and work, but I did not read it.
    I do not know how I was buried, it's interesting, if you know what to share! :)
  3. The last months of his life Paganini did not leave the room, his legs ached constantly, and numerous diseases no longer succumbed to treatment. He was so exhausted that he could not take the bow into his hand, the violin lay side by side, and he fingered her strings.

    Niccolo Paganini died in Nice on 25 May 1840 year.

    The name of Paganini was surrounded by a certain mystery, which he himself helped, talking about some unusual secrets of his game, which he promulgates only after the end of his career. During Paganini's lifetime, very few of his works were published, which his contemporaries explained by the author's fear of discovering many of the secrets of his virtuosity. The mysteriousness and singularity of Paganini's personality aroused in his superstition and atheism, and the bishop of Nice, where Paganini passed away, refused the funeral mass. Only the intervention of the pope destroyed this decision, and the ashes of the great violinist finally found peace only by the end of the 19 century.
