Il progetto Cabiria


The Archivio storico of the Auditorium RAI “A. Toscanini” in Turin

During Cabiria Project we could not proceed with the census of the Archivio storico of the Auditorium RAI “A. Toscanini” in Turin. The institution is currently the subject of the research Riordino, catalogazione e studio dei documenti manoscritti e a stampa conservati nell’Archivio musicale dell’Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI, funded by the Ministero dell’Università e della Ricerca Scientifica (FIRB, 2012-15) and coordinated for the University of Turin by Andrea Malvano (This email address is being protected from spambots.
