Centro di Musica Antica Pietà de’ Turchini

$0 per person

The private law foundation legally recognized with the name of Pietà de’ Turchini since 2010, originates from the musical association established in 1984 with the name of Cappella della Pietà de’ Turchini – Center of Ancient Music which later became in 1997 Center of Ancient Music Pietà de’ Turchini. The founding idea was to give life to a project of valorisation and interdisciplinary research, with a focus on the extraordinary Southern and above all Neapolitan musical and theatrical heritage of the 16th-18th centuries, investigating its reflections and the very strong links with the coeval production European music and theatre.

Music production and dissemination, research, publishing and higher education – with particular attention to early music from the Renaissance to the eighteenth century – are the areas in which the Foundation commits its best energies and resources. Ideally, the Foundation recalls the tradition of the ancient Neapolitan Conservatories, of which that of Santa Maria della Pietà de’ Turchini was the most prestigious. Among the main purposes there is that of enhancing the Neapolitan musical and theatrical heritage of the XV-XVIII centuries, tracing its reflections in contemporary European musical production.

The Pietà de’ Turchini stands as a pole of aggregation, of productive exchange between musicians, ensembles, scholars, researchers in defense of a positive and cultured image of the city of Naples and the recovery of the prestige that distinguished it throughout the world.
