!!Tropes present in Puccini's life:
* BadassMoustache
* TheCasanova: As he himself stated: "I am a mighty hunter of wild fowl, operatic librettos and attractive women."
* DaddysGirl: Was very fond of his step-daughter Fosca.
* TheDandy
* EmotionalBruiser: Loved sport cars, yachts, hunting, card-playing and other masculine activities, and at the same time cried like a baby when writing the scene where [[Theatre/LaBoheme Mimì]] dies. [[note]]Although this is unconfirmed[[/note]]
* GreenEyedMonster: Puccini's wife Elvira was notoriously jealous - [[TheCasanova for a reason]]. This led to a tragedy, when Elvira accused Puccini's maid Doria Manfredi of having the affair with the composer. The girl had been completely innocent and [[DrivenToSuicide killed herself]].
* ItRunsInTheFamily: Came from a family with five generations of musicians.
* OverlyLongName: Giacomo Antonio Domenico Michele Secondo Maria Puccini.
* PowerTrio: His most popular operas ''{{Tosca}}'', ''MadameButterfly'' and ''Theatre/LaBoheme'' were written together with the duo of librettists Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa. For ''La Fanciulla del West'' and ''{{Turandot}}'', he also employed two dramatists.

Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924) was an Italian composer, sometimes referred to as "the last greatest opera composer". This is probably justified, as his operas are among the most frequently performed, and every opera company has them in their repertoire. Some arias from his operas are well known even to a non-operatic audience, like ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5lZSZTJXa4 O mio babbino caro]]'' and ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUkTKAg7HHM Nessun dorma]]''.
