Subject of this study is the relation between music and church institutions in early modern Italy. Beginning with a reappraisal of the historiographic concept of ‘church institution’, the author tries to establish a dialogue between church historiography and musicology, since the one rarely considered music as part of its research objects, and the latter studied church music mainly as an artistic product, rarely connecting it to the institution it was part of and which promoted and made use of it.

Franco Piperno is professor of Musicology and Music History at the Sapienza University of Rome, where he also directs the Performing Arts Center “Sapienza Crea – Nuovo teatro Ateneo” and is in charge of cultural activities. He is former president of Aduim (the association which brings together musicologists who teach in Italian universities); he is editor of the series Musicalia (Lim, Lucca) and is a member of the advisory board of the journal Recercare. He is an honorary member of the Accademia dell’Arcadia (Rome) and of the Istituto di Studi Romani. His principal research fields are music in the Italian Renaissance courts; music and poetry in Cinquecento Italy; Italian instrumental music of the seventeenth century; opera production and dramaturgy in the eighteenth and ninenteenth centuries.
