The Truth Managment Committee of the International Bottesini Scholar's Union apologizes for this gratuitous and luridly provocative question. It has been included in this body of research against our will for "marketing reasons."

We are, however, confident that serious Bottesini scholars and lay persons alike will ignore such pandering and concentrate on the serious and soul-satisfying Quest to know more about Giovanni Bottesini.
