rossini e l'accademia
The Accademia Filarmonica of Bologna has welcomed with great pleasure the invitation by the Fondazione Rossini in Pesaro  to collaborate to the preparation of the exhibition for “La Cenerentola” at the Casa Rossini in Pesaro (10-31 August 1998), on the occasion of the performance of Rossini’s famous masterpiece at the Rossini Opera Festival. The new critical edition by Maestro Alberto Zedda, presented on this prestigious occasion, has been worked out upon the Rossinian autograph kept at the Archives of the Accademia Filarmonica of Bologna, holding several important manuscripts of the major composers.  Together with the autograph of the La Cenerentola, the Accademia Filarmonica  has put other Rossinian documents of its historical Archives, among which a few musical manuscripts and several letters stand out, at the disposal of the exhibition. Rossini was admitted to the Accademia Filarmonica of Bologna in 1806, when he was only 14 years old, and from that time he was always closely linked to our Institution, where still today the historical Istituzione Rossini, which had been established by the great composer with the profits of the Bolognese performance of the Stabat Mater (1842), has its seat.  During the years, the Rossinian events organized by the Accademia Filarmonica of Bologna have been innumerable: with the publication of this booklet, on the occasion of the exhibition for La Cenerentola, we intend to express our concrete interest  and participation in the prestigious initiative in Pesaro, for which we heartily thank the Fondazione Rossini. The publication contains three essays: The autograph of Rossini’s Cenerentola in the Archives of the Accademia Filarmonica in Bologna, by Giuseppe Vecchi; Rossini and the Accademia Filarmonica of Bologna, by Luigi Verdi; The Accademia Filarmonica of Bologna and its history, by Romano Vettori.
