Gioacchino ROSSINI a Giant of Italian Music

Gioacchino Rossini
I studied and earning music just from I was few years. With Mozart, Louis Armstrong, Mina, Gioacchino Rossini was one of my Heroes. The Power of his music, his 'crescendo' makes me fill a very incredible emotions; if you close your eyes he can make you dreams... "La gazza ladra", "Il barbiere di Siviglia" , the "Overtures" , "William Tell", are pièces that only a genius can write, more than an easy musicist. 
He was born only 3 years after Mozart's died; this date is significant to the Italian's music development: Rossini, Verdi and after Puccini signed 100 years of best Italian classic music, only the 'rock revolution', comes from UK and US, in the '60's can change it, and, finally, rennoved.
When he was at the best of his career his stopped and go to leave near Paris. We don't know why.
Someone think because he was a big depression, others one, other things...
