Euregiomusica Project Premio Bonporti 2023

 Study Day

The frescoes of the ‘Music room’

Castel Toblino (TN) 2 September 2023

in collaboration with

Schola Cantorum Basiliensis – Basel (Switzerland)


Associazione Culturale Castel Toblino (TN)

In recent years at Castel Toblino, a historic complex dating back to the 12th century and since the 16th century the peripheral seat of the court of the prince-bishops of Trento, frescoes with musical subjects of exceptional importance have emerged, presented in the essay by F. Dassenno, Suoni silenti. I violoni dipinti in Castel Toblino, in “Studi Trentini, Arte”, C, 2021, 2, pp. 526-574.  The Accademia di Musica Antica has decided to dedicate a series of teaching and study activities to this discovery as part of the 28th edition of Euregiomusica Premio Bonporti – International Baroque Violin Competition, in scientific and artistic-musical collaboration with the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis (Switzerland), a well-known international centre for research and teaching of early music, and in synergy with the Castel Toblino Cultural Association for the tourist-cultural promotional aspects.

 The focus of the project is the in-depth study of the historical-musical and organological characteristics of the pictorial complex of Castel Toblino and the problems it poses as a very particular, if not unique, case study in the international context.

From a methodological and organisational point of view, it was decided to organise the day around a number of themes, with basic papers distributed in advance to scholars invited to intervene and ‘respond’ as discussants. The study day is open to all interested people; the discussion at the end of each section will be open to all participants.


Scientific coordination:

Martina Papiro – Schola Cantorum Basiliensis
