Giuseppe Buccioni was an Italian musician. From 1766 to 1769 he received his first music lessons from B. Cherubini, father of the famous Luigi's, which was certainly a friend in the early years of his youth, having learned singing and harpsichord from the same source. On his return to Florence in 1770 GM Rutini, which was also the first teacher of Mozart, he continued with his studies until 1778, and two years later, just twenty-two, he was appointed maestro di cappella at the church of S. Gaetano, place he held until his death.
