The archive of Virginia Ferni Germano (Turin, 16 December 1849 - 4 February 1934), acquired by the Istituto per il Teatro e il Melodramma in 2016, contains the photographic collection that belonged to the musician and acclaimed performer of late nineteenth-century opera, the preferred singer of Alfredo Catalani. The collection includes more than 100 original photographs: a small series of stage photographs by Ferni Germano herself is accompanied by portraits of artists, singers and musicians from the period around the turn of the nineteenth century. Most of the photographs are accompanied by handwritten dedications to the singer from the subjects portrayed.
