It is a non-profit Association active since 1982, in Italy and France. 

Its general intent is the documentation, research, publication and distribution of musical material dating from and pertaining to the 19th century.

One of our main functions is to compile an archive of all the printed and manuscript pieces from the 19th century to be found in Italian libraries. Students, scholars and performers can have access to all the music, in microfilm or copies. We make the music easily available.

Another objective is the research about how to play and interpret the 19th century repertoire, through original tutor books for all the instruments.
