Casa della Musica is an initiative of the City of Parma dedicated to the study, research and proliferation of musical culture. Some of the most important musical institutions of the city are headquartered in Casa della Musica: the Historical Archive of the Teatro Regio, the Deaprtment of Musicology at the UniversitÓ degli Studi, and the International Center for Research on Musical Periodicals (CIRPeM). The Historical Archive of the Teatro Regio, in particular, holds one of the greatest and most complete collections on Italian theater. Founded in 1816 by Duchess Maria Luigia of Austria, it holds not just documents that testify to the activities of the Teatro Ducale and the Teatro Regio, but also donations, legacies and holdings that over time have further increased the great value of this collection. The conserved documents are mostly playbills and programs, libretti and musical scores, portraits of performers and composers, autographed letters, sketches of sets and costumes, administrative documents and audio and video recordings. The exhibition at Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marim˛ provides an accurate sample of the most significant pieces in the collection.
