Italy 1954-1955

From July 1954 through January 1955, Alan Lomax made the first broad survey of Italian folk music, producing over 3,000 recorded items. Diego Carpitella, his collaborator in preparing for the research, accompanied him for three months of the field trip and also co-edited the two Columbia LPs that resulted from these recordings: Southern Italy and the Islands and Northern and Central Italy. Their research was underwritten by the BBC, financed by Lomax, and planned with the guidance of Georgio Nataletti, director of the Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome. It covered all previously undocumented regions of Italy and represents the music and songs of peasants, shepherds, fishermen, and artisans in over a hundred localities from Sicily to the Alps.
