Centro documentazione di arte musicale "Attilio Parelli"
Where Piazza del Municipio, Monteleone d'Orvieto (Terni)
Musical Art Documentation Center “Attilio Parelli” The Centro Documentazione d’Arte Musicale of Monteleone d’Orvieto was founded with the aim of offering an exhaustive overview of the professional profile and career of the composer and conductor Attilio Parelli (1874-1944), a renowned musical artist from the town. In the museum display cases more than a hundred of the original manuscripts of his most famous musical compositions—such as The Mischievous Lovers, Hermes, Fanfulla from Lodi, the Composer’s Music Printed Sheet of his compositions and those his colleagues donated to him, often with autographs and dedications—are kept for conservation. Furthermore, there are some Libretti—‘small books’ in Italian, containing a synopsis of the plot—of his works, tens of pictures of the Parelli family and film recording shot around the world, diplomas and much evidence of his passage in the many towns he resided. This is a heterogeneous collection of works not only recounting the musician Parelli, but also his great sensibility and artistic and private life. All material, kept for conservation by the Attilio Parelli Documentation Center, was donated by the heirs of the Composer to the Monteleone d’Orvieto Municipality.
