Italian opera singer, born 15 days after Giovanni Martinelli in the same small town, both tenors who dominated the world of opera in the beginning of the 20th century.
Pertile married very young, just past 14, on 2/28/1900. A singer, he lost his voice at 17 and went into business as a goldsmith. Eight years later his voice was sufficiently returned that he could make his opera debut as a tenor. He triumphantly made his first international tour in 1913 and opened at La Scala in 1922.
In 1946 Pertile retired. He died of a heart attack 1/11/1952, Milan.
