Biography of the famous--and notorious--Italian violinist Nicola Paganini.
In 1827, Pope Leo XII knighted Paganini with the Order of the Golden Spur. He was in the company of other great artists of the past. Among them are painters Raphael (1483-1520) and Titian (1490-1576), sculptor Bartolomeo Cavaceppi (1716-1799), and composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791). The latter at age 14.
Nicolo, what's the matter? You find the laurels harder to gain than you imagined?
Nicolo Paganini: Germi, I'm a fool.
Luigi Germi: Good, it takes most of us a lifetime to realize that.
