Bagpipe Icongraphy from Italy


Fig. 1 – Ms. 340, fol.1v Biblioteca Teresiana, Mantua It is a pleasure for me to write some words about our Facebook group “Iconografia della cornamusa in Italia”1 and I am very happy to share this work with English and worldwide friends. The project started in June 2018 driven by the idea to fill a gap on the research into Italian bagpipes, especially in the field of iconographical evidence.

We are settling into our new website, including making available articles from our thirty year history. If you spot something inaccurate, garbled or missing, or if you want to volunteer to help us improve our site, please mail info@bagpipesociety.
