The essay reconstructs and interprets the Spanish years of the most famous castrato of all time in a historicizing and contestualizing perspective. A particular attention is addressed to the Madrilenian operatic spectacle, to the theatres of Buen Retiro and of los Caños del Peral, to the Royal site of Aranjuez, to the Tago fleet and to the close network of relationships and contaminations of practices that characterized the Eighteenth Century cosmopolitan Europe.
