Vivaldi's Early life.

Vivaldi's early life was very interesting. He was born 1678 in Venice, Italy. He was baptized as soon as he was born unlike other babies because there was a theory of a Terror-able

event that feared to happen but never happened. He was born into a large family with 4 brothers and 4 sisters. At age fifteen he began studying to be priest. Overtime Vivaldi became diagnosed with "tightening of the chest" which is commonly known as asthma. Him and his father would play together in church and his father grew to become a important influence in his life.
