Inscription. Giuseppe Verdi is credited with having invented the Italian national operatic style. Born the son of a poor grocer in LeRoncole, Italy, Verdi began composing at age 13. After failing the entrance exam at the Milan Conservatory, he began lessons with a former member of the orchestra at LaScala in Milan. He married the daughter of his patron and ultimately began his own career in opera in Milan in 1839. His best known works include Rigoletto, Aida, Il Trovatore and La Traviata
