Il libro

Music and architecture have often been closely related. A classic book such as Architectural Principles in the Age of Humanism by Rudolf Wittkower is largely based on this fascinating relationship in Florence and Venice during the Renaissance but it is only one example. The Europa Cantat Festival in Turin, 2012, with its use of historic architectural and urban spaces for choral performances of all kinds, has provided the opportunity to explore this topic once again by studying more deeply not only the historic choirs of Bernardo Vittone and Filippo Nicolis di Robilant but also a modern spaces like the Astra Theater in Turin. By involving students and teachers from different European Schools of Architecture, new ways have been explored in the design of urban and interior spaces for choral concerts. This book is a collection of essays written from different perspectives: those of architects (historians and designers), musicians, scholars and even opera singers.
