the routes taken by Italian master lutenists

Hopkinson Smith follows the routes taken by Italian master lutenists, who made the palaces of the Renaissance resound with their dances and preludes. Francesco Spinacino traveled from the old Roman town of Fossombrone in the Marche region to Venice. There he published the first ever printed work of lute music in 1507. A year later, his fellow musician Ambrosio Dalza followed with his own publication of lively dances, such as the pavane, saltarello and piva.
