The book, unique for its rich iconography and for the number of testimonies, tells the story of “La Musica Moderna”, a printshop specializing in the engraving and printing of musical scores, active in Milan from 1930 until 2007. The company chronicles inevitably intertwine with those of the songwriters and singers in Italy, in an unrepeatable cultural season in which publishers, authors and musicians were the creators and disseminators of the popularity of music.

La fabbrica delle note di carta (“The factory of the paper notes”) also tells the story of a lost craft, revealing much of the “back room” of music, of when the notes were shapen on plates and paper, thanks to the skill and knowledge of men committed to making it popular and easy to play.
