Who is Paolo Bordogna? I’m an Italian opera singer. I was born in a little town close to Milan and I’m the only musician in my family. I’m saying this because I want to pay a tribute to my parents who always supported me in my professional choice without knowing anything about Opera or Classical Music. They used to say that I convinced them that be an opera singer was my “life” when they saw me on stage. I love them.
