Francesco Paolo Parenti (1764-1821) studied music in Naples; at the age of 26, he moved to Paris where he spent the most part of his life and career. Ho wrote some opéra-comiques for the Parisian stage ("Les portraits", 1790; "L’homme et le malheur", 1793; "Le cri de la patrie", 1793). He also played in the orchestra of the Théâtre de la Société Olympique conducted by Antonio Bartolomeo Bruni at the beginning of the XIX century. Later he was active as a singing teacher (his "Philomelodia ou L’art de chanter" is partially preserved).
