Research project

The Music section of the Department of "Lettere e Culture Moderne" of La Sapienza University of Rome has launched a research project about “Soundscape and musical events in Italy, XVI-XIX century. Patronage, performance practice, critical editions".

The project is inspired by recent interdisciplinary perspectives offered by studies on the soundscape and urban historiography. It aims to open the discussion about the meaning of soundscape in early modernity (1500-1800). We will focus particularly on Rome, the ceremonial and cosmopolite city par excellence, but also on the wider context of Italian cities between the 16th and the 19th centuries. Researching into music in the physical, symbolic, social and cultural space of the city means problematize the relationships that determine the diversity of musical practices, interpreting them through the concepts of image, place, representation, scenery, space and territory. Historians of music now are solicited to shift the focus from individuals to communities, which modelled the cityspace physically and acustically, through civic and religious practices; it is also necessary to interrogate how the interaction among soundscape, space and urban scenery impacted on the
construction of the identity of the city. By stressing the idea that the space is socially constructed through diverse conceptions (of practice, of representation and as a space of representation) it is possible to widen scholarly perspectives about "music in", recontextualizing the musical object we analyse in time and space.
