This man had a dream, a dream where Satan was HIS servant and Giuseppe told that Devil what to do. He even made Beelzebub entertain him, by playing his violin. As the songs will tell you, the Devil plays a pretty good fiddle son, so we’ll give the Devil his due, but Giuseppe Tartini has the 1st Stradivarius ever made and he thinks he’s better than you... Devil! He kidnapped his wife and pissed off her family, an old Sicilian family, wink-wink. Her Uncle was a powerful Bishop in the Roman Catholic Church. The Bishop put a death mark on Tartini. He disguised himself as a monk and fled the country. Taking refuge in Ancona, Italy, this is where he honed his skills on the violin and composed other-worldly concertos, as if plucked straight from the muzak soundtrack of Hell’s elevator. Luckily, Giuseppe was so good at the violin, his reputation spread far and wide and because of this, the “green light” was removed from Giuseppe and he could finally return to his home, with his wife and live the rock star life he so deserved. Tune in for the Tome of Giuseppe Tartini! Leave an Anonymous SpeakPipe Voice Msg: Tweet Us: IG: FaceBook:
