Guiseppina Finzi-Magrini

Giuseppina Finzi-Magrini (Turin, 1878 – Desio, 1944) was an Italian soprano.

Finzi-Magrini made her debut in 1896 as Oscar in Lucia di Lammermoor. She was remembered for her style and moderation. In retirement she turned to teaching. Her students included the Danish baritone Frantz Rabinowitz (1918–1948).

In 1943, when Italy came under Nazi occupation and Jews were being hunted, Finzi-Magrini who was of Jewish origin went into hiding under a false name. In 1944 a young nephew was deported to a concentration camp, causing a heart attack that left her mute and paralyzed. She died six weeks later from wounds received in an American air-raid on Desio.
