Charles Burney in Milan - 17 July, 1770
from Music, men and manners in France and Italy, 1770 / Charles Burney, pages 45-6:
L’Amore Artigiano was the opera buffo or drama giocoso. […] There were 7 characters in it all pretty well done but no one very, well, as to singing. […] There was an abominable noise except during 2 or 3 arias and a duet, with which everybody was in raptures.
