Carlo Gesualdo

Real Name:
Carlo Gesualdo da Venosa
Profile:
Italian Renaissance composer, Prince of Venosa and Count of Conza. He was born 8 March 1566 at Venosa, Kingdom of Naples (now in Potenza province, Basilicata region, Italy) and died 8 September 1613 in his family's place of origin, Gesualdo (now in Avellino province, Campania region, Italy).
