Niccolo Paganini was the third child in the family of Antonio Paganini (1757-1817) and Teresa Bocciardo, who had six children. His father was at one time a loader, later had a shop in the port, and during the census of the population of Genoa , carried out on the orders of Napoleon , he was called "mandolin holder."
When the boy was five years old, his father, noticing his son's abilities, began to teach him music, first on the mandolin , and from the age of six on the violin. According to the memoirs of the musician himself, his father severely punished him if he did not show due diligence, and this subsequently affected his already poor health  . However, Niccolo himself became more and more fond of the instrument and worked hard, hoping to find still unknown combinations of sounds that would surprise listeners
