Renata Tebaldi Casa Langhirano

The 30th of April, 2010 

Renata’s Mother, Giuseppina Barbieri, was from Langhirano, a town  20 kilometres from Parma.  She met Teobaldo,  Renata’s father, at Langhirano, where he had been sent as a convalescent after having wounded his leg. Teobaldo, in fact, belonged to a detachment of the Second Regiment of Grenadiers situated there.  The two fell in love at first sight.

The Barbieri family had always been the postmasters at Langhirano.  There were uncles, aunts, cousins, friends.  So Langhirano became the home town of Renata Tebaldi.
At Langhirano Renata lived in the house in Piazza Garibaldi, and is burried in the family chapel in the Cemetery of Mattaleto.
