Dulcet tones

The core of this collection is the donations by 18th-century Franciscan priest Giovanni Battista Martini, a collector who looms large in Italian musical history (among other things, he tutored Johann Christian Bach, composer and youngest son of Johann Sebastian Bach). Located at Strada Maggiore 34, at the Museo Internazionale e Biblioteca della Musica you can trace the history of European classical music from various aspects, including instruments, sheet music, and various forms of documentation about composers, performers, and the impact of music in society.
