Giuseppe Tartini

Guiseppe Tartini was born in what is now Slovinia on 8 April 1692. His pious parents had planned for him to become a priest. Thus, his early education was in his native region where he also studied the fundamentals of music. However, in 1708, he left the area and never returned. He then studied law at Padua University where he spent most of his time studying fencing.
