Homage to Enrico Caruso (25/02/1873 - 02/08/1921)

Young CarusoThis is a non-profit homepage created as a post mortem tribute to the legendary Neapolitan singer and opera star Enrico Caruso who, with his voice, empathy, charisma and gramophone recordings, contributed to making opera known and loved in the world in the beginning of the past century.

When I say non-profit website, that's exactly what this is: No banners, no selling, no adds, no fees, no links that I make money on when clicked, no hidden agenda.

So why on earth spend hundred of hours, as I have, developing this site? Very simple... I want to share the beauty of Caruso's singing with others!
