La musica folkThe Saggiatore has published a monumental work entitled “The folk music. stories, characters and revival of documents in Italy “. The book, to be followed by the online publication of a collection of writings devoted to various Italian regions, has been edited by Goffredo Plastino and represents the most important contribution on the subject. The amount of material that encloses is extraordinary, both in quantitative and qualitative terms. Skimming the index we can get an idea of ​​the level of detail and depth reached: historical evidence and analysis of the scholars who more than others you are interested in the musical revival in the sixties and seventies – like Roberto Ledi and Diego Carpitella -, contributions protagonists of many of the phenomenon (by Roberto De Simone Michele L. Foreign until Gianni Bosio), studies and reflections on the guidelines that have characterized the revival of Italian popular music, essays by scholars, ethnomusicologists and journalists on specific cases: from the Cantacronache Nuova Compagnia di Canto Popolare, by Zezi Pomigliano d’Arco to Nuovo Canzoniere Italiano, Giovanna Marini and Lucilla Galeazzi, up to Caterina Bueno and Sandra Mantovani. In short opera omnia, a real guide to Italian folk, to which all fans and the curious will be able to refer any information on the subject. Especially when you consider the fact that through the many contributions – organized for specific sections and in order to very broad content categories, both documentary and analytical – it defines a very clear profile of the Italian revival. A profile determined by factors probably best known as the political ones and part of the aesthetic, but also by many insights on repertoires, on the tools and many different research experiences developed and proposed by the protagonists of our folk.
