Each lecture, which will be focused on a family of musical instruments, will be introduced by Natacha Fabbri, Conservatory graduate in piano performance, PhD in Philosophy at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa, as well as collaborator of Museo Galileo. In a fascinating dialogue between musical and scientific instruments, some Conservatory teachers will perform different musical genres from different eras in the museum’s halls.
