Italian entrepreneur, the husband of opera diva Maria Callas. He met Callas in 1947 when he was 32 years her senior. Despite the opposition of both families, they wed on 4/21/1949 in Verona, with no family members in attendance. With his wealth and experience, Meneghini transformed her into a glamorous star. Since Callas was prone to fragile health, he would not let her bear children, thinking it might harm her physical well-being as well as her career.

The marriage began its demise when they took a cruise on the Christina in the summer of 1959. Callas met Aristotle Onassis on the great ship, which Onassis owned and she began an affair with the Greek tycoon a year later.

In 1975, Callas rejected Meneghini's offer of reconciliation and she died of a heart attack at her Paris home 9/16/1977.
