The Anonima Frottolisti project was started in Assisi as a result of a meeting of musicians who had had international experiences of musical performance and study. Its purpose is to deal with the repertory of European Humanism. The practice and research of this ensemble are based on the use and analysis of original scores, in the awareness of the value of the writing and theory of that period. The ensemble’s aesthetics is constantly influenced by everything that is a living demonstration of what art was in ancient times, ranging from oral-tradition music to scholarly music: this research aims to evaluate how these two worlds continually enrich each other. Anonima Frottolisti has performed in Italy and abroad, during some of the most important early-music seasons: Sweden, Slovenia, Bosnia, France, Croatia, Italy. The ensemble has collaborated in the creation of the sound track of the docu-fictions San Francesco e Frate Leone and Bernardo da Quintavalle (Lauro Production); it has acted as musical co-ordinator for the Palio of Isola Dovarese (Cremona); and has worked with Sky for the serial Lucrezia Borgia. The Anonima Frottolisti project stems from a collaboration with Associazione Ritmi.
