Some letters of Giacomo Puccini have been rediscovered by the writer Maurizio Sessa. It is a collection of letters preserved in the Antinori Archive of Florence, consisting of 161 letters in which Puccini mostly tells of the hunt for friends the Giuseppe della Gherardesca and Piero Antinori. But in these letters also the so-called “Doria Affair” appears. This is the case of Puccini’s young maid, Doria Manfredi, who committed suicide following accusations of having become the composer’s lover. Already at the time it was shown that it was a false accusation, and in these letters the whole agony of Puccini for the incident emerges. Furthermore, there is a hard “j’accuse” against the relatives of his wife Elvira and those of his stepdaughter Fosca.
