Crossing music, history and digital humanities through Martini's letters
Musicians’ correspondences provide valuable insight into cultural and social life of the 18th century. Franciscan friar Giambattista Martini (1706-1784) left a rich collection of letters with hundreds of correspondents. However, a relevant amount gathered in libraries, archives and private collections all around the world remains unexplored. The EU-funded MARTINET project will create a representation of the 18th century European musical environment through the reconstruction and investigation of Martini’s epistolary network. The project will investigate the vast archives worldwide, identify the central themes and create an open platform for scholars and a wider audience to address specific topics applying digital humanities and social network analysis tools.
