Seated on a chair with her arms folded in her lap, wearing a wedding ring; she was married to Carlo Antonio Borsi. Teresa De Giuli-Bórsi (1817-1877) an Italian soprano who studied in Milan. She was acclaimed throughout the major musical centres of Europe. She was one of the first sopranos to have been both a drammatico soprano and one conversant from the start with assoluta roles. The success and length of Giuli-Borsi's career (1839-1866) strongly suggest an enviable ease in all three registers of her voice.
