Enore Zaffiri & the others (Pietro Grossi, Teresa Rampazzi): Italian electronic music pioneers

There was a loophole in the Italian electroacoustic music studies. Noone had ever written a complete study dedicated to Enore Zaffiri, and now we finally have a complete book about this astonishing music researcher. Andrea Valle and Stefano Bassanese are the editors of the book Enore Zaffiri. Saggi e Materiali. Here you find the complete publication (Creative common, ISBN: 9788890341328).

I am proud to be part of this publication. My contribution builds on the pioneering work of Pietro Grossi,Teresa Rampazzi and Enore Zaffiri, the analogies and mutual exchanges between these pioneers and their laboratories – “Interdisciplinarità, collaborazione, didattica e diffusione a Torino (1963), Firenze (1964) e Padova (1965)” pp. 85-110.
