Antonio Melandri (1891–?) was born in Bologna and first studied oboe at the city’s conservatorio. Discovering his voice in his late twenties, he made his début in Novara in 1924. Melandri’s Scala début was as Calaf in Puccini’s Turandot in 1926 and the following year he sang in Buenos Aires. In addition to appearances in Holland in 1937-38, Melandri also sang in Germany, Belgium, and Switzerland and throughout Italy. His recordings included Cavalleria Rusticana and abridged versions of Ernani and Fedora.
