an Italian impresario and librettist, best known as the manager of the La Scala Milan opera house between 1829 and 1850, and for his support for the young Giuseppe Verdi. Merelli was born in Bergamo and studied composition there with Simon Mayr. He moved to Milan around 1812 and worked there as a theatrical agent, at the same time writing a number of librettos for Mayr, Gaetano Donizetti, Nicola Vaccai and other composers. He set up his own agency in 1826 and managed seasons in Varese, Como and Cremona between 1830 and 1835, and was joint lessee (with Carlo Balochino) of the Theater am Kärntnertor in Vienna from 1836 to 1848.
