Barberini Harp Project / Convening
What We Know, and What We still Do Not Understand about the Barberini Harp

Harfenlabor invited the historical harpist and researcher Chiara Granata and renowned luthier Dario Pontiggia to share and present their discoveries, findings and analysis related to new facts about the Barberini Harp that had recently come to light. Granata and Pontiggia collaborated on the analysis of these new documents on the Barberini Harp through the perspective of organology, and published the outcomes of this research in 2015, in the Recercare journal. Their presentation opened Convening around the Barberini Harp, a symposium organised by Harfenlabor that took place on December 14-16, 2016 at the Museo Nazionale degli Strumenti Musicali and at the Istituto Storico Austriaco in Roma.
