Art or cultivated Music, but also popular and traditional music, notoriously require a lot of effort. This is due to the musical language itself, which has its own essentially enigmatic nature.
From this point of view, music represents an ideal field for research, be it compositional, interpretative, aesthetic, musicological, technological or even, in a broader sense, existential.
The main purpose of the workshop organized by FBK-ISR together with the Bonporti Conservatory of Trento, the University of Verona and the student association “Oi Dialogoi” is to discuss the various facets of research in music and their possible intersections and synergies with other fields of inquiry in the humanities and in the science/technology field, also in light of the agreement recently signed between FBK and the Conservatory of Trento.

Scientific coordination:
Paolo Costa, FBK-ISR
Massimo Leone, Director FBK-ISR


The seminar will be held in Italian.

The presentation will be in-person in the FBK Aula Piccola while seats last and online.

Registration by November 20, 2023 at 12:00 a.m. is required in order to arrange the connection.



  • Margherita Anselmi holds the chair of Piano at the Conservatorio “F.A. Bonporti” in Trento and Riva del Garda. Graduated in Philosophy of Language at the University of Verona with Chiara Zamboni, she has been engaged for years in promoting intersections between the musical and speculative fields. With this in mind, she first founded “Attraversamenti” at the Conservatory of Verona, in collaboration with the city’s University, and then “Interpretation: Networks of Relations Generated by a Work of Art”, an annual conference and research project in collaboration between the Conservatory of Trento and Riva del Garda and the University of Trento, from which a number of publications for the publishing house Mimesis (series “Darshanim”, Tetragramma series) have resulted.
  • Federica Fortunato teaches History of Music at the Conservatorio “F.A. Bonporti” in Trento and Riva del Garda. After graduating in Pianoforte and majoring in Foreign Languages and Literature, she pursued further musical and humanistic studies (Music Didactics, Modern Literature, Body Expression through Music). A member of the scientific committee of the International Center of Studies “Riccardo Zandonai,” co-artistic director of the Festival Settenovecento (Rovereto), a member of the Accademia roveretana degli Agiati, she is involved in research, production, and training projects. In recent years, she has devoted herself mainly to regional music history and the creativity and social role of female musicians from Trentino and Eastern Europe.
  • Pier Alberto Porceddu Cilione is a researcher in Aesthetics at the Department of Human Sciences at the University of Verona and teaches at the Academy of Fine Arts in Verona. He studied at the State University of Milan, the University of Verona and the Freie Universität Berlin. His research interests range from Aesthetics to Philosophy of Music, from Morphology to Translation Theory and Philosophy of Culture. He is the author of La terra e il fuoco. Antinomie della cultura (2017); La formatività assoluta. Per una fisica dell’arte (2018); Tradurre la musica. Goethe e la West-Eastern Divan Orchestra (2019). He edited Darshanim, vols. 1, 2 and 3.
  • Oi Dialogoi is a project-network among students and teachers of Conservatories and Universities. It was established by the students of the F.A. Bonporti Conservatory of Trento and Riva del Garda in 2021, within the framework of the multi-year research project “Interpretation. Networks of relationships generated by a work of art”. It continued in collaboration with the Como and Venice Conservatories and the Universities of Siena, Rende, Verona, and Trento. The originality of its contribution lies in the creation of a polycentric network of events and meetings between teachers and students that is autonomous from any institutional purpose and devoted exclusively to the production and dissemination of knowledge in the field of music.
